2. NGC6962 Eastern Veil Nebula
The Veil Nebula is a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust in the constellation Cygnus. It constitutes the visible portions of the Cygnus Loop (radio source W78, or Sharpless 103), a large but relatively faint supernova remnant. The source supernova exploded some 5,000 to 8,000 years ago, and the remnants have since expanded to cover an area roughly 3 degrees in diameter (about 6 times the diameter, or 36 times the area, of the full moon). The distance to the nebula is not precisely known, but Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) data supports a distance of about 1,470 light-years.[2]

3. NGC891 Galaxy
NGC891 is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Andromeda. It is approximately 30 million light years away. It was discovered by William Herschel on October 6 1784. Although this galaxy looks as we think our own galaxy would look like when viewed edge-on, recent high-resolution images of its dusty disk show unusual filamentary. These patterns are extending into the halo of the galaxy, away from its galactic disk. Scientists presume that supernova explosions caused this interstellar dust to be thrown out of the galactic disk toward the halo. The galaxy is a member of the NGC 1023 group of galaxies in the Local Super cluster.

5 NGC1333 Dark Nebula
NGC1333 Is a dark and dusty reflection nebula in Perseus. It is approximately 1000 light years from Earth. There is much going on in NGC1333. In this dark and dusty Nebula there is also Emission and Reflection Nebula. There is new star formation with most of the stars being less than 1,000,000 years old. That’s very young for a star, considering our sun is 4.5 billion years old now. NGC spans about 6 light years across.

NGC7635 The Bubble Nebula also known as Sharpless 162, and Caldwell 11, is approximately 7800 light years from earth. It is about 6 light years in diameter. NGC7635 lies in the constellation Cassiopeia. The powerful stellar winds from a Wolf-Rayet Star create the spherical bubble. A Wolf-Rayet Star is an unusually powerful star, discovered by astronomers Charles Wolf and Georges Rayet. This image is a Ha OIII BiColor image.

8. NGC2237 Rosette Nebula
The Rosette Nebula is not the only cosmic cloud of gas and dust to evoke the imagery of flowers — but it is the most famous. At the edge of a large molecular cloud in Monoceros, some 5,000 light years away, the petals of this rose are actually a stellar nursery whose lovely, symmetric shape is sculpted by the winds and radiation from its central cluster of hot young stars. The stars in the energetic cluster, cataloged as NGC 2244, are only a few million years old, while the central cavity in the Rosette Nebula, cataloged as NGC 2237, is about 50 light-years in diameter. The nebula can be seen firsthand with a small telescope toward the constellation of the Unicorn (Monoceros).

This galaxy is detectable only 30 ‘from the star β Canum Venaticorum, we show how a molten highly irregular due to the interaction with a small neighboring galaxy, NGC 4485. Both are visible with an instrument for opening of 120-150mm, although it is much less flashy. The nucleus is very bright and dominates the entire galaxy, the arms are arranged in east-west direction, with the western facing the companion NGC 4485. The system is far from the Milky Way galaxy about 23 million light-years

10. NGC7000 The Cygnus Wall
The Cygnus Wall is in the southern area of NGC7000 also known as the North America Nebula. It is approximately 1800 light years from Earth, and is in the constellation Cygnus. The Wall is an energized shock front and contains the most concentrated star formations in the nebula. The size of the North America Nebula is about 4 full moons.

12. M76 Little Dumbbell Nebula
M76 is a planetary nebula in the constellation Perseus. It is approximately 2500 light years away, and about 1 1/2 lights years across. M76 is one of the fainter Messier objects. Planetary nebula, like M76 and M57 and M27, are made of glowing shells of gas ejected by stars late in their life. The gas is ionized by the ultraviolet radiation from the hot core of the star. Despite the name planetary nebulae these have nothing to do with planets. They were named this when they were first discovered because of their similar appearance in size and color to the planet Uranus that was discovered in 1781.

13 NGC660 Polar Ring Galaxy
NGC 660 Polar ring Galaxy is approximately 20 million light years away in the constellation Pisces. A Polar Ring Galaxy is a type of galaxy in which an outer ring of gas and stars rotates over the poles of the galaxy. A rare galaxy, these galaxies have a substantial population of stars, gas, and dust orbiting in rings, perpendicular to the plane of the galactic disk. This may have been caused by capturing material from a passing galaxy.

15. NGC7822 The Pillars
NGC 7822 is a young star forming complex in the constellation of Cepheus NGC 7822 (also designated Sharpless 171, SH 2-171) is a young irregular emission nebula and star forming region of about 40 light-years across, located some 3,300 light-years away at the edge of a giant molecular cloud toward the northern constellation Cepheus. It is home to the young star cluster Berkeley 59, whose stars are just a few million years old. A supernova remnant associated with NGC 7822, indicates that a massive star has already exploded. At the edge of a giant molecular cloud toward the northern constellation Cepheus, the glowing star forming region lies about 3,000 light-years away.
