Description

This FOV includes IC 417, NGC 1931 [the Spider and the Fly], M 38 [Starfish Cluster], and NGC 1907 [small open cluster between the Starfish and IC 417]. I want to add RGB color, especially to bring in the blue stars in the Starfish and the reflection features of the two nebulae; also color will show the red of the surrounding HII areas. Hopeflly I can get that data before galaxy season wipes away access to these targets.
