IC1396

Elephant’s Trunk Wide-Field

Yet another take of the Sh2-131 emission nebula in Cepheus with the embedded star cluster IC1396 and home to the famous Elephant’s Trunk Nebula VDB142. It is a large emissions nebula with stunning inlays of dust clouds absorbing most of the lights. The total size of the complex corresponds to about 10 times the full […]

IC1396 – Again

Elephant’s Trunk Nebula

This is the official first-light image with my new APM 107/700 Triplet APO! It works beautifully with the Hotech SCA Field Flattener and the ATIK 460EXm and produces a nice flat field – much better than my previous setup. This combo will be my high-resolution combo for quite some time. As you will have guessed […]

IC1396 – Emission Nebula in Cepheus – Bicolor

The Sh2-131 emission nebula in Cepheus with the embedded star cluster IC1396 and home to the famous Elephant’s Trunk Nebula VDB142. It is a large emissions nebula with stunning inlays of dust clouds absorbing most of the lights. The total size of the complex corresponds to about 10 times the full moon. This is a […]

IC1396 – Emission Nebula in Cepheus – Mono

Elephant’s Trunk Nebula – IC1396

The Elephant’s Trunk Nebula is an elongated dark globule within the emission nebula IC 1396 in the constellation of Cepheus. Located at a distance of 2,450 light-years, the globule is a condensation of dense gas that is barely surviving the strong ionizing radiation from a nearby massive star. The globule is being compressed by the […]
