IC 405

Combination of 12 5-minute images with an H-alpha filter, 15, 5 minute images with an SII filter and 15, 5 minute images with an OIII filter.
SBIG STL-1001E CCD. 5" f/5 refractor at prime focus.

IC 405 is one of a pair of large, but fairly faint nebulae, in the constellation Auriga. They are situated about 5 degrees north of beta tauri (Al Nath). The other is IC 410. IC 405 is the larger and slightly brighter of the two. Both were visible in a 10" telescope under very dark skies.

A small portion of IC 410 is visible at the left edge of the image above which was processed using the H-alpha images as the red channel and the SII as the green channel.
