IC 405
The Flaming Star Nebula, IC 405 is a very large star forming region of Emission Nebula (red) and Reflection Nebula (blue) which is illuminated by the bright star.   It is about 1,600 light years away from Earth.   This image is a composite from two night's of exposure, Nov 8 and 9, 2004.   Hydrogen Alpha Luminance shots on the first night and RGB shots on the second for a total HaRGB composite of 90:30:30:30.  Unfortunately the camera was not oriented the same way on the second session causing one night's to be rotated to match the other.  The effects of this can be seen in the corners of the shot.
