To the north of Orion and Taurus is the constellation of Auriga. The constellation is easily recognised by the pentagonal shape of its brighter stars and for the first magnitude star Capella, which is just out of view at the top of this image. Bring situated in the Milky Way, Auriga contains a number of good open clusters and double stars. It also is home to a number of faint emission nebulae.
The two bright emission nebulae near the top of the photograph are IC 405 (above) and IC 410.
