Photograph of the Wizard Nebula (NGC 7380)
The Wizard Nebula is an open cluster of stars embedded in a cloud of interstellar gas and dust. The nebula has been forming stars for the past 5 million years. It was discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1787. It is a very dim nebula in the constellation Cephus. The nebula is about 7,000 to 8,000 light years away from Earth and is about 100 light years across. From Earth's perspective it is about the size of the moon in our skies.
This picture was taken with narrowband filters capturing glowing hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur through a Takahashi FSQ-135 telescope. There was a total 225 minutes of exposure. Each filter was then assigned to a different color.
