A quick reprocess of the Eagle Nebula (wide angle) in a new Hubble palette, HSO. Thought I would give it a try since it will be cloudy for the next week. The chances of getting any new data on this object is going to be tough as it disappears behind my house for the next 7 months. The Eagle gets its brightness from a cluster of young stars, 5,700 light years away in the constellation of Serpens. It is fairly bright at magnitude 6.4 and the brightest star in the cluster, HD 168076, can be seen with binoculars or a small scope. It contains The Pillars of Creation, the famous Hubble photo created by one of Emma’s old professors at ASU, Paul Scowen.
