NGC 2264 is a combination of two astronomical objects: the Cone Nebula and the Christmas Tree Cluster. They are located in the Monoceros constellation, 2600 light-years away from usI spent 25 hours collecting data for Ha, Luminance, Red, Green, and Blue in a dark site located in Marathon, Texas, which has the sky of Bortle Scale of level 2. Hope you guys like it.
