NGC 346 and IC 1624 Available on Starbase

Southern deep-sky gems NGC 346 and IC 1624 Ha, OIII, and RGB image sets are now available for subscription and download on Insight Observatory's image set repository, Starbase. Both objects were acquired on the 12.5" f/9 Ritchey Chretien affiliate remote telescope, ATEO-3, located at Deep Sky Chile in the dark skies of the Rio Hurtado Valley, Chile.

NGC 346 is about 200,000 light-years away from Earth, toward the southern constellation Tucana. This magnificent open cluster belonging to the Small Magellanic Cloud is an irregular galaxy that is quite distorted due to the gravitational interaction with the Milky Way.

It is the brightest star-forming region in our neighborhood. The light, the wind, and the heat emitted by its massive stars scattered the glowing gas around a cluster of stars, forming a thin surrounding nebulous structure resembling a spider's web.
