Emission Nebula (Hydrogen plasma)
Exposure: LRGB = 60 min each, H alpha 110 min. H alpha blended with red channel and luminance.
Date: Dec. 29, 2008 - Jan. 1, 2009
Comments: This is only a small part of an extremely large area of nebulosity called Sharpless-206. So the reddish nebulosity extends far beyond the edges of this image.
