Nebulas galore

The first picture is LDN1235, a dark molecular cloud in the constellation of Cepheus. Also visible are the bright blue reflection nebulae VdB149&150.

The second picture is a bi-color narrowband image in Ha and O3 of the hydrogen rich area in Cygnus. Top right is NGC6888 or Crescent nebula at a distance of 5000ly. Middle left is the very faint PN G75.5+1.7 or Soap Bubble nebula, discovered only very recently by an amateur astronomer in 2008 (not me, 🙂 )
