Description

Sh2-126: Great Lacerta Nebula

Sharpless 126 (Sh2-126) is a large emission nebula in Lacerta, which appears in this image as a red background. The source of its ionisation is the intense ultraviolet radiation from the star 10 Lacertae, a blue main sequence star.

This region, with its faint nebular filaments, is part of Lacerta OB1, a giant star-forming region about 1200 light-years from Earth.

This image is acquired with the Takahashi FSQ-106ED refractor and FLI PL16803 camera from Telescope Live in IC Astronomy Observatory, Oria, Spain.

Total integration time 680 minutes
LHaRGB: 8:18:14:14:14 sub-frames of 600s.
