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.
