Nebulae

Abstract

Of all the photographs in large-format “coffee table” astronomy books or posted on the Internet, those of nebulae are often the most spectacular. With their panoramas of glowing red, green and yellow colored gas clouds, and impenetrable blankets of black dust lanes, often intertwined and seemingly swirling around each other, they give a wonderfully vivid impression of the amazing mechanisms at work in the universe.
