A new image (of a nebula) has been uploaded

Hi all,


A new image has been uploaded to the web site. This time, it’s a nebula: NGC 2467. This is a rather interesting nebula, because it is an active star nursery. It has many (45) YSOs (Young Stellar Objects) and five of them have been labelled in the annotated copy. One remarkable feature of this image is that the Halpha images were taken with a 3nm filter, leaving “untouched” the vast Eastern region that, then, can be captured with the OIII filter, showing an area with beautiful loops.

You can find it at:
