Description

Crop of larger frame. An uncharacteristically short integration from DSW. Kind of a test to see what we can do at f/3.8...plus I really like this target. More data is on the way.

Very little from Wiki ;-)

NGC 2170 is a reflection nebula in the constellation Monoceros. It was discovered on October 16, 1784 by William Herschel
