The Flaming Star Nebula IC405

Markus Breidenich

Markus recorded the Flaming Star Nebula IC405 in the constellation of Auriga from his observatory in the Eifel. The image has been taken with a Skywatcher ED80 on an EQ6 mount, a Canon EOS 450D camera, guided with a Mgen autoguider. For the final image, 16 exposures with 15 minutes each have been stacked (4 hrs total exposure time).
