Description

IC 405 (also known as the Flaming Star Nebula, SH 2-229, or Caldwell 31) is an emission and reflection nebula in the constellation Auriga, surrounding the bluish star AE Aurigae.

It surrounds the irregular variable star AE Aurigae and is located near the emission nebula IC 410, the open clusters M38 and M36, and the K-class star Iota Aurigae. The nebula measures approximately 37.0' x 19.0', and lies about 1,500 light-years away from Earth. It is believed that the proper motion of the central star can be traced back to the Orion's Belt area. The nebula is about 5 light-years across.

3 x 300 seconds through Ha, SII and OIII filters. Was going to be a mosaic with Tadpoles also but I type in wrong RA. Grrrrrrr.

This is a complete reworking of the data. But maybe not the last! As get Photoshop CS2 I been studying filter, and adjustment layers etc. so hopefully this is improvement.

Complete redo for better detail and cropped. I think could work on one image to eternity if wished :-)
