Beim Vergleich mit älteren Aufnahmen kann man Veränderungen des Nebels feststellen.
Besonders gut eignen sich dafür die Platten des "Big Schmidt". Für die Blau-Animation habe ich die Aufnahmen aus dem POSS-I und dem POSS-II verwendet, das ergibt die Jahresfolge 1953 - 1988 - 2018:
Im Roten ist der POSS-II ausgelassen und das Bild wechselt gleich zwischen 1953 und 2018:

A comparison with older images reveals changes in the nebula.
The plates of the "Big Schmidt" are particularly well suited for this. For the blue animation I used the pictures from the POSS-I and the POSS-II, which results in the year sequence 1953 - 1988 - 2018:
In red the POSS-II is omitted and the picture changes immediately between 1953 and 2018:
