Description

My travel on the LDN catalogue of dark nebulae is still in progress.

Now I visited the nice west area of the Cepheus Pilars (NGC7822), integrating more than 80 hours of data to create this picture.

NGC 7822 is a young star forming complex in the constellation of Cepheus.

The complex encompasses the emission region designated Sharpless 171, and the young cluster of stars named Berkeley 59.

The complex is believed to be some 3,000 light years, with the younger components aged no more than a few million years. (credits Wikipedia)
