Name that Nebula!

Nebulae are giant clouds of gas and dust in space often formed from the remnants of a supernova. Scientists name these clouds of gas based on what they look like. Now you must follow in their footsteps.
All of these nebulae have names that are a bit more scientific than calling them animals that they vaguely look like. If you enter the weird string of letters and numbers that constitute their scientific names, that will be accepted as well.
Names taken from Wikipedia. Alternative names allowed as long as they're mentioned in the article (with one exception due to overlap).
Note that all of these pictures are not real colors. As you may be able to tell when you look at the night sky, it is not full of bright red, yellow, and blue clouds. These colors are computer-generated to represent wavelengths of light not normally visible to the human eye.
Honorable mention that I can't fairly include in this quiz: The Dark Doodad Nebula

Hello!

I'm really sorry, but I actually realised that I used a part of your map of the solar system for two of my quizzes without asking before. I'm really sorry, and I would like to know if it disturbs you. So do you allow me to use this map? To precise, I used it in the first part of the two quizzes of this series.

I really love this quiz! It's unique and well organized, just how any Jetpunk quiz wants to be.

I made a quiz that has almost an identical name, and didn't realize that there was another quiz similar to it, if not, better.
