      Description

      Collaboration with Mike Selby.

      IC 2631 is the brightest reflection nebula in the Chamaeleon complex. It is a gorgeous reflection nebula that has a lot of fine detail to it!

      A bright blue reflection nebula with a lot of ] dust, IC 2631 is lit by the massive young bright star HD 97300. IC 2631 is effectively an incubator for a number of very young proto stars.

      The RGB is from the CDK 700 and I registered it with the more detailed Lum from the 1m to get the details out.

      Imaged in LRGB on the Planewave CDK 1000 at Observatorio El Sauce, Chile.
