While processing my NGC 2264 (see also I saw this wondeful part of the nebula. It's remembering me to a flying ghost which looks like the "Little Michelin Man" hunting the star 15Mon. :-) So I decided to point out this part in a special crop. If anyone knows, whether there is a specific catalogue ID for that part of the nebula, please let me know! :-)
