IC405 - Flaming Star Nebula

I started this target much too late in the year for my tree challenged horizon. Only 95 minutes of luminance was captured and the shot was planned to be a two frame mosaic. I reused the color channels from an image I took in 2005 with the ST-2000XCM. Perhaps it will have to wait until next season to try this one again. It looks like there is a small galaxy in the upper right corner.
