|Here is another urban
image taken from my driveway
under heavy light pollution. This is the second image off a new Zwo
ASI2600MC-Pro camera and it could use about double the exposure, but incoming clouds ended the imaging session a bit early.
According to Wikipedia - Westerhout 5 (Sharpless 2-199, LBN 667, Soul Nebula) is an emission nebula located in Cassiopeia. Several small open clusters are embedded in the nebula: CR 34, 632, and 634 (in the head) and IC 1848 (in the body). The object is more commonly called by the cluster designation IC 1848. Small emission nebula IC 1871 is present just left of the top of the head, and small emission nebulae 670 and 669 are just below the lower back area.
