NGC2264 - The Cone Nebula and the Christmas Tree Cluster
Date: January 20, 2009
Location: Seven Sisters Observatory - Manchester MI
Equipment: Megrez 90 APO, FFIII, Canon 10D Modified, Orion SSAG
Conditions: Very cold but very clear.
Film: None! DSLR @ ISO 800
Exposure: 13 X 600 seconds with 3 X 600 seconds dark frames
Comments: Shot in the southeast part of my sky - not the best place but far from the worst. You can see the cone and CT cluster as well as NGC2259 - an open cluster in the upper left and NGC2261 - Hubble's Variable Nebula. One can also see the "Foxfur" nebula and an interesting dark nebula left of center top.
