LkH 198

March 31, 2003
Atlas Image mosaic, covering 6.7´ × 6.7´ on the sky, of the Herbig Ae/Be star LkH 198, at a distance of 600 to 900 pc. The Herbig Ae/Be stars are intermediate-mass pre-main sequence objects, showing emission lines in their optical spectra and appearing with associated nebulosity (they are more massive than their lower-mass counterparts, the T Tauri stars). LkH 198 is the bright object at the center of the image. 1999 Jul 21-27
