Exposure: R=Halpha, B=OIII 120 min each. G=Synthesized from R&B using PS action by Noel Carboni
Date: Sept 10, 29, 2010.
Comments: This entire region is mainly Ha plasma. This part of it is labeled Cederblad 214. The 'columns' distributed over the lower half of this image are like those in several other nebulas (e.g., NGC 6820 and M16). This is a small part of the extended region known as Sharpless 171.
