IC405, 410 - Emission Nebula in Auriga
Emission Nebula in Auriga
  • Description: This is a collection of large, faint emission nebula in Auriga the Charioteer. IC405 is the larger of the two on the right, IC410 on the left. Embedded in IC410 is a cluster of stars - NGC1893. This is a magnitude 7.5 open cluster of about 60 stars. This is a "first light" photo using some new equipment that will allow me to shoot some types of images from home! Since 1986 I have left town to take pictures so this is a proof of concept image. The amount of sky I can see is limited but off to a good start!
