Dust Angel

The elusive Angel Nebula

The story

For most people, this is just an image of a fuzzy and messy nebula. It is, actually! Although it’s also a bit more than that. A typical astroimage of this area of the sky would mostly show the stars you see here, and not much more. All the dusty structures in this area would mostly remain invisible. Why? They’re really, really faint. Back in 2010 I challenged myself to capture this area, and I managed to produce the deepest image to that date of this faint and dusty angel. Six years later I added twice the exposure time and produced the image you see here. Some people started using the same “angel nebula” name for a different nebula in Monoceros (NGC 2170), when they probably shouldn’t.
