NGC 7822 – Teddybear Nebula

NGC 7822 or the Teddybear Nebula is an emission nebula located in the constellation Cepheus in the northern sky. The nebula is circumpolar as seen from Sweden, meaning it never goes below the horizon. The nebula is a star-forming region approximately 2900 light years from Earth and the width is estimated at 21 light years. In star-forming regions there are stars that count as babies, and by babies if we talk in stellar terms we mean a few million years old, where our sun is, for example, 4.6 billion years old.

In this video I will show you how I captured the nebula using my monochromatic camera and SHO filters and processed it using PixInsight.
