NGC 2261 Mon 2.0


This is a combination of 2 images, each of 120 seconds The images were taken with a Alta-U9 attached to an Meade LX200R 12" F/10 telescope. Each of the images was corrected with a dark frame and a flat field.

One of my favorite objects. Amateurs seeing it for the first time think it is a comet because is has a brigh nucleus and a 'tail' off in one direction.
