Description

Cederblad 214 is part of NGC 7822, a large emission nebula located in northern Cepheus, which is actually the northernmost emission nebula in the sky. The nice little cluster consisting of a few stars at the center is called Berkley 59. The complex is believed to be about 3000 light-years distant, with the younger components aged no more than a few million years. Many dark nebulae can be seen in this area as well, most of them superimposed on top of the nebula.

This image was culled from over 90 hours of subs to its final image of 48 hours. This target really intrigued me with all that it has with the small star cluster, dark nebulae and the pillar like formations
