Description

Molecular Clouds in Constellation Chameleon and Carina.
Also Galaxy NGC3620, Reflection Nebulae IC2631, Cederblad 110 and Cederblad 111.
Mosaic out of 2 Images.
IMAGE CENTER RA 11:09:14, DEC -77:11:31
IMAGE WIDTH 3d 49' 48.6" x 4d 33' 32.5"

In this dusty area IC2631/Ced112, Ced110 and Ced111 are reflection nebulas. Their declination is strongly Southern (DEC -77), they can be observed exclusively from the regions of the southern hemisphere. IC 2631 reflection nebula is the brightest part of the Chameleon molecular cloud in which the phenomena of star formation creating low-mass stars takes place . This cloud is of great importance in the study of the formation of planetary systems and brown dwarfs.
GN11.07.3 is the orange triangular nebula - an infrared nebula.

Exposures:
The upper part of the mosaic contains:
12xR, 10xG, 10xB all 5 minute exposures.
The lower part of the mosaic contains
14xR, 16xG, 18xB all 5 minute exposures.
Total 400 minutes.
Using a SBIG ST11K on a Takahashy FSQ 106 with 530 mm focal length on a Paramount ME mount.

All images were exposed remotely on the T12 of Siding Spring iTelescop Farm.
