Pacman Nebula

The Pacman nebula sits 9500 light years away in the constellation Cassiopeia. It is a fairly large emission nebula that has a radius of 48 light years. Although first discovered in 1883, in recent times it was named after the popular video game character given its wide-open mouth likeness. 245 images comprise this image for a total of 12+ hours of exposure time.
