    Default LDN 137 and LDN 141 and Dusty Surrounds



    Here is an image of LDN 137 and LDN 141 and surrounding region. The background star field is fairly dense, so the dark nebulae stand out pretty well. LDN 141 is smaller and denser than LDN 137 and is either embedded in or foreground to the larger dark nebula. Also in this field are some background galaxies. Some of those have similar distance measurements and are members of the the same galaxy group [CHM2007] 1223.

    Image and details can be accessed from the link below. For convenience, I have provided a link to the annotated image below, but it can also be accessed from the main image page.

    Hi Jim. A superb image of the Lynds Dark Nebulae (LDN 137 and LDN 141) from you. I especially enjoyed the annotated version on the Astro site. Excellent contrast and dark dust lanes in your capture. Thanks for sharing this with us on here Jim, and the best of regards.

    Thanks for the comment Marshall. I appreciate your comment on the annotated version. I have the annotation semi-automated now, but there still is some manual work and time in researching the field and adding any additional notes.
