#11: Nebulae in Ophiuchus

Nebulae in Ophiuchus is the topic of Part #11 of our image presentation, where we want to share the results from our astrophotography-trip to DeepSkySafaris in Namibia.

At the border between the constellations Ophiuchus and Scorpius we find a very well known and often photographed object complex: the Ophiuchus Molecular Cloud. It is one of the closest star forming regions with a distance of only 407 light years. The colorful region is known for its large number of reflection-, emission- and dark nebulae. To conclude our series, we also show a Milky Way mosaic of 34 parts, made over 4 years in the northern and southern hemisphere by Bernhard Hubl.
