IC 1848, Half of the Soul Nebula in HOO - Douglas J Struble

Posted by Stellarvue on 29th Jan 2020

This week's StellarShot was submitted by someone you should be familiar with, Douglas J Struble. He has let us share some remarkable images over the past two years. For this image, Douglas used his SVX102T-R to "Own the Night." Douglas had this to say about IC 1848:
The Soul Nebula in Cassiopeia is a faint hydrogen emission nebula 6500 light years away and about 100 light years across. The Soul Nebula is being carved out by the stellar winds from the stars embedded within it, a process that leaves behind large pillars of material pointing inwards. These pillars are very dense and have stars forming at their tips. Each pillar spans about 10 light years.
