NGC 2264, Cone Nebula


Recommended Posts

This is a widefield view of NGC2264, the Cone Nebula. It forms the top part of a two panel mosaic I'm working on to try and incorporate the Rosette Nebula too. I need more time on the bottom panel though, only 8 hours so far.

This is 15 hours of data shot in 3min subs through my Samyang 135@f3.4 and my Risingcam IMX571 camera, through the Antlia ALP-T 5nm Dual Narrowband filter.

There's a LOT going on in this area, as you can see in the starless version. I'm very tempted to keep adding to this and see how much more I can bring out? I've left the background fairly light here to show the faint details around the main nebula but it does mean there's a little more noise present in the image too.

Thank you both. I'm curious as to what that large O3 looking bubble is at the bottom left of the image? Astrobin platesolve hasn't given it any kind of identifier.
