IC 410

The Tadpole Nebula is a dusty emission nebula shaped by stellar winds in the constellation Auriga, the "tails" being relatively dense streamers of material trailing away from the nebula's central regions.
Exposures were 12x600s Ha luminosity, 12x300R,6x300G, 6x300B using a Starlight Xpress Trius 694 camera. Images were acquired in Nebulosity, stacked in AstroArt and modified in Photoshop.


NGC 2244 is an open cluster closely associated with the Rosette Nebula in Monoceros, the stars of the cluster having been formed by the nebula's matter. This image was taken with a Starlight Xpress Trius 694 monochrome camera on a Takahashi FSQ 106 refractor.12x600s exposures in Ha as luminosity, 6x300s each for RGB were captured in Nebulosity, stacked in AstroArt with flats(no darks) and processed in Photoshop.
