IC1396 imaged last night in full moonlight with the Altair Astro 102 ED-R and Starlight Xpress H9-C + Altair Quadband. 100mins integration. Processed in Astropixel processor and Photoshop.

"IC1396 or the God nebula (or elephant's trunk nebula), imaged last night.
The entire IC 1396 region is ionized by a massive star, except for dense globules that can protect themselves from the star's harsh ultraviolet rays.
The God Nebula is now thought to be a site of star formation, containing several very young (less than 100,000 yr) stars. Two older (but still young, a couple of million years, by the standards of stars, which live for billions of years) stars are present in a small, circular cavity in the head of the globule. Winds from these young stars may have emptied the cavity."
