Cederblad aka Sharpless is a young large irregular emission nebula star-forming region about 40 ly across. Powering the nebular glow are the young, hot stars of the Berkeley 59 cluster: constellation Cepheus near its border w/the constellation Cassiopeia Cosmos, Hubble Space Telescope, Space And Astronomy, Orion Nebula, Helix Nebula, Carina Nebula, Andromeda Galaxy, Space Images, Space Pics

Cederblad 214

Also designated Sharpless 171, this is a young irregular emission nebula and star forming region of about 40 light-years across. Powering the nebular glow are the young, hot stars of the Berkeley 59 cluster. This is a repro of my earlier Cederblad 214 shot. I liked the look of it recropped this way and some slight contrast tweaks. Think the interplay of dust and emission gases shows up a bit better.
