    What's the bright structure right next to the "black hole" artifact at the top of the image? It reminds me of Eta Carinae.

    Tricky to say at that resolution. Could be an extension of the artifact from the bright star's diffraction spikes.

    there some EGOs in the bottom right corner is there also a bowshock there it looks like the dust is curving away from the star system

    New to classifying. Looks like a star cluster. Thoughts?

    Dusty star forming region certainly with a foreground bright Milky Way star.

    I'm new to this site and I found this Image when I was identifying the Milky Way. Can someone explain what this is?

    Posted

  • jules by jules moderator

    It's a bright oversaturated foreground star with diffraction spikes in front of a much more distant star forming cloud. Cool image. 😃

    I would say there's a young open cluster forming? near the center of the image, but slightly upper right.

  • PreJhTrg by PreJhTrg

    Maybe 2MASS images can reveal this potential open cluster better. Its located inside the "cloudy" region a bit below the bright star.

    Top center...Any input on this bright star? possibly?

    Posted

  • jules by jules moderator

    The green centre & diffraction spikes are camera artifacts. Cameras are calibrated for tenuous MW dust & bright stars cause oversaturation,

    Maybe black hole?

  • ElisabethB by ElisabethB moderator

    See the comments below : the dark centre of the star is an artifact, caused by oversaturation.
