Planetary nebula Messier 27, often called the Dumbbell Nebula. Located in the constellation of Vulpecula. The term planetary is a misnomer as it has nothing to do with planets. The outer layer of the star is expelled into space when a star goes through a red giant phase. The outer layers are then ionized by the remaining core as it becomes a white dwarf star. Something our Sun may become near the end of its life cycle.

Messier 17 is a H II region located in Sagittarius. Similar to the Orion Nebula, but more massive and viewed edge on. The main part of the nebula spans some 15 light years and is home to some current 800 stars with many more thousands being born in outer layers. At around 1 million years old, it is forming a young open cluster of stars.

Messier 16 or as commonly call the Eagle Nebula, or Star Queen Nebula is an open cluster and nebula located in the constellation of Serpens. The central spires of dust and gas were made famous by the Hubble's "Pillars of Creation" image. The pillars and other regions of the nebula host new star formation. The central spire is some 9.5 light years in length. The age of the cluster is around 5 million years.

The nebula patterns and brightness slowly changes over months and years from shadows of dust clouds illuminated by the star R Monocerotis, which in itself encased in a dust cloud. Discovered by William Herschel, and studied by Edwin Hubble who it is named after.
