Pel­icane Neb­ula (IC 5067) in Cygnus

Pelicane Nebula (IC 5067) - Astrophotography Martin Rusterholz

The Pel­ic­an Neb­ula (also known as IC5070 and IC5067) is an HII region asso­ci­ated with the North Amer­ica Neb­ula in the con­stel­la­tion Cygnus. The neb­ula resembles a pel­ic­an in shape, hence the name. The Pel­ic­an Neb­ula is a large area of emis­sion neb­ula in the con­stel­la­tion Cygnus (the Swan), close to Deneb, and divided from its bright­er, lar­ger neigh­bor, the North Amer­ica Neb­ula, by a molecu­lar cloud filled with dark dust.

About Me

Hello, my name is Martin Rusterholz. I’m a Swiss amateur astrophotographer living near Zurich, the biggest town in Switzerland. My interest in astronomy started when I was 16. At that time, I built my first Newtonian telescope and mount. I studied physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) which was the only study including at least some aspects of astronomy and astrophysics. “Looking at the nights sky is an experience touching everybody deeply inside, something common to all human beings independent to the language spoken by the individuals”. Deep-sky astrophotography is my passion.
