A Young Open Cluster in a Nebulous Complex
The open cluster NGC 6910 is found in the nebulous emission complex IC 1318, which is located in the constellation Cygnus. As NGC 6910 is near the galactic plane, there is a significant amount of interstellar dust in the area. Indeed, the blue spectroscopic star HIP 100548 (aka SAO 49563) is rendered yellowish white due to the light scattering by the interstellar dust. Estimated distance of the star cluster and nebula is 2,000 to 5,000 light years. Image was taken with a 12.5 inch at f/9 RCOS astrograph with a SBIG STF8300c CCD camera on a Paramount ME in Mayhill, NM on the nights of 4, 5, 21, 25, 29, ant 30 Oct 2016. Total of 14 hr 20 min exposure (43 x 1200 sec lights at -15 degrees C; 18 darks; 128 bias; 128 flats); image acquisition MaxIm DL 6; calibration, registration, integration, and processing in PixInsight 1.8.4.1195 Ripley (x64)
