Deep Sky
Cone Nebula

NGC 2264
In the constellation Monoceros and is located about 2600 light years from earth.  The Cone Nebula is part of the Christmas Tree Cluster.  Unfortunately, we captured just a sliver of the cone on the upper right side.  The bright star you see in the center is S Monocerotis and is the brightest in NGC 2264.  

This image is a result of 150 - 15 second images stacked together.  Next time we will try and get the actual 'cone'.  In any case, this star-forming complex has many beautiful components.

Tried to get this bad boy again, but did’t get it.
