    5 very distinct H-II regions? the most interesting i think is the "blackhead". very Bok Globule looking. Can anyone else shed light (no pun intended) or find a zoomable image>

    Yes -- certainly a very busy area of the sky.

    Can you better describe the blackhead?
    Its common to find dense regions of gas that completely block the light from the newborn stars.
