Description

Here we have NGC 2170 in Monoceros.
An interesting mix of blue reflection nebula with large dust particles reflecting light and red emission nebulas showing through local stars exciting the hydrogen through there ultraviolet emissions. Finally all this is finished of with some dark nebula adding some interesting contrast to the image.
The image also features the smaller NGC 2183 and 2185 at the centre of the image the smaller NGC 2182 sitting between 83/85 and 2170. The star γMon finishes the image at the lower left.
Thanks to Lloyd for the extra data set.
Rev B - Few tweaks and correct colour profile used, was on my printing version earlier so little too red for the screen.
Rev C - Few improvements (I hope) better stars, better col balance and less NR.
