IC1396 "Starless"
 
By digital image processing I removed the stars in the picture.
Thereby there comes the structures of the luminous hydrogen
especially well to the prenote.

M42 The Orionnebula
 
The probably nicest winterconstellation, Hunter,
accommodates various interesting objects.
One of it is the big Orionnebula M42.
Here together with his small brother M43 and
above that NGC1977, the "Running man nebula".
M42 is an active starburst region and exists to
the biggest part of hydrogen. Very young and hot stars
in the centre of the nebula bring this to the lights.
Distance approx. 1500 light years.

The "Pelican nebula" and the "North America nebula"
 
2 gigantic hydrogen regions in the constellation Swan.
Distance approx. 3000 light years.
Where from the names come, would be allowed with the Pelican nebula be unequivocal.
Unfortunately, the North America nebula is to be seen not whole, however, has the coarse outlines of the North American continent.
Extremely hot stars bring the hydrogen to the lights.

IC1396 does not only of red luminous hydrogen exist, but also contains dust-shaped matter. Especially strikingly of her
Dark fog IC1396a in the lower picture part. Here is an active

The horsehead nebula in the constellation Hunter
 
With the big Orionnebula M42 together this area is the nicest and most interesting region in the constellation Hunter.
The famous dark cloud of the "horsehead nebula" B33 is to be seen here as well as in the background the hydrogen cloud IC434, those of "Alnitak", the belt star of Hunter is illuminating everything  to the lights.

NGC7000 The North America nebula
 
The big hydrogen complex in the constellation of the Swan in a black-and-white photograph.
Primarily twice ionized hydrogen determines the appearance of this region.
This hydrogen radiates very much narrow in the H alpha Line at 650 nm, and is ordinarily always red on colour photos.
This picture was taken with a H alpha narrow band filter, so that the hydrogen comes out here very contrast-strongly.
To see well here, how the hydrogen gas is condensed into a "wall".

NGC7000 the North America nebula narrowband
 
The North America nebula in the colour combination which was created by the team of the Hubble Spacetelescope.
The colours are assigned as follows:
Red = sulphur [SII]
Blue = oxygen [OIII]
Green = hydrogen (ha)
Advantage of this color palette is that the components of the nebula are very good distinguishable from each other as well as a good spatial picture impression.

M16 the Eagle nebula
 
Located in the southern Milky Way between the constellation of the Eagle and the Archer, you find one of the most spectacular hydrogen areas generally.
