Title: M20 Jet
Submitted On: 6/28/2004
Photographer: Michael Sidonio
Equipment Used: Meade 12"LX200GPS-Smart Mount Technology (SMT) with UHTC Coatings

Monochrome close up was taken at 3050mm FL and is 15min of Halpha while the background image is an LHaRGB at 1250mm FL. Both images were taken through an LX200 12" GPS using an SX MX716 CCD.

The jet of material is probably being ejected from a young, low-mass protostar. The jet seems to eminate from the head of a dense region of the main nebula and extends almost a light-year out into the surrounding hydrogen. The jet is most likely from a very young and possibly still forming star that lies buried within the dense part of the nebula.
