Description

The Pleiades Seemingly swaddled in their natal gas and dust, stars of the Pleiades are actually already making a life for themselves as they travel in the spiral arm of the Milky Way. We happen to look upon them through dust which scatters bluish light. However, the region of our galaxy in this direction also has the typical low level (red) emission from clouds of latent hydrogen gas. This image attempts to reveal this story as a connected whole. DATA Date: Acquired early October 2006 Telescope: Televue 127 Camera: Apogee U9000 Total Integration Time: 7 hours Approximate Time to Process: 9 hours Minimum Credit Line: Adam Block and Tim Puckett.
