IC 349, also known as Barnard's Merope nebula, is a reflectionnebula which lies 3500 AUs (0.06 light years) from the star Merope.

This shot was just a test.
I wanted to see how a star of the plejades would look like trough the C11.
Later i saw this reflection beside of Merope.
So i decided to process this single shot as good as possible to show IC349.
