Description

The Elephant's Trunk nebula is a concentration of interstellar gas and dust in the IC1396 star cluster and ionized gas region located in the Cepheus constellation about 2,400 light years away from Earth. The piece of the nebula shown here is the dark, dense globule IC1396A. It is commonly called the Elephant Trunk nebula because of its appearance at visible wavelengths, where it is a dark patch with a bright, sinuous rim. The bright rim is the surface of the dense cloud that is being illuminated and ionized by a very bright, massive star that is just to the west of IC1396A. IC1396A is also called van den Berg 142 (vdB142).

Image taken with a Canon EOS 20D camera in prime focus of a professional refractor-teleskope at 1290mm f/5.1. Exposure time is 165 minutes ! This is a very deep and real image, so the "noise" in background is no noise, these are very very dim stars again. The image is not overprocessed and sharp. See the spikes on the very bright stars.
