Weather doesn't support any imaging, so I reprocessed an older image, the Elephant's Trunk nebula.
A detail in IC 1396 emission nebula
Image in mapped colors from the light emitted by ionized elements.
Red=Sulfur, Green=Hydrogen and Blue=Oxygen.
The elephant's Trunk nebula is a concentration of interstellar gas and dust in the star cluster IC 1396.
This ionized gas region locates in the constellation Cepheus about 2400 light years away.
Formation is coursed by a stellar wind, radiation pressure, from a group of massive young stars.
At the time of imaging, the seeing was very good, HWFM ~2.5
