Description:

I present to you, one of my most important works, an extremely difficult nebula to process, and I have never been so cold to get an image as it was in Munhoz - MG - -Brazil. Located approximately 5,000 light-years away, in the constellation Sagittarius. A star-forming region in the plane of our galaxy, the object is an unusual combination, illustrates three different types of astronomical nebulae: 1) Red emission nebulae dominated by the light of hydrogen atoms. 2) Blue reflection nebulae produced by dust reflecting starlight 3) Dark nebulae, apparent "gaps" in the emission nebula, which cause trifurcarda appearance.
