Polaris Integrated Flux Nebula

Recommended Posts

This is a small area of integrated flux nebula (IFN) near to Polaris. I just love the jellyfish like structure, it makes me think of some strange sea creature swimming through the depths of a dark ocean.
Taken over several nights during our first clear spell of the year here in the UK.  15.6 hours with RASA 8 and ZWO 1600MM and Baadar LRGB filters

I really like that - very edifying. How extensive is this region of IFN? Are regions of IFN catalogued/mapped anywhere?

Thanks for sharing - very inspiring.



Thanks Adrian. Polaris is surrounded by IFN - try search Astrobin and you'll get various widefield images showing how extensive it is.
