An image of an interesting nebula (RCW 120) has been uploaded

Hi all,

An image of a quite interesting nebula has been uploaded. It was already time to finish it, as this image was taken nearly two years ago… This nebula was studied with the Spitzer Telescope around the same time I was taking this image. You will find more information about this nebula and characteristics at:

RCW 120

Enjoy,
Josep

An image of the Cone and Fox Fur Nebulae has been uploaded

Hi all,

This time, three images have been uploaded to the same web page. An image of the Cone Nebula, a second image with the Fox Fur Nebula and the mosaic that shows both can be found at:

NGC 2264. The Cone and fox Fur Nebulae

This region, as many emission nebulae, contains numerous interesting objects, mostly Herbig-Haro objects (up to 24 of the 25 Herbig Haro objects present in this area can be found in the mosaic), but also the very active IRS1, with IR emission and embedded with numerous stars in their first stages of formation as well a known MASER source.

Enjoy,
Josep

An image of the Pacman Nebula has been uploaded

Hi all,

Another image taken from the Northern Hemisphere has been uploaded. This time, an emission nebula, the Pacman Nebula. This nebula has many peculiarities and I specially like the pillars (neatly pointed to their originators, the massive and hot O and B stars in the cluster nearby) and the many Bok globules.

It can be found at:

NGC 281. The Pacman Nebula

Enjoy,
Josep
