IC 410 and the Tadpoles in Ha
The emission nebula IC 410 and the embedded open star cluster NGC 1893 are found in the constellation Auriga. The emission of IC 410, which is about 12,000 light-years away, is powered by the young hot stars in NGC 1893. The gas streamers just to the right and above center, often called the “Tadpoles”, are moving away from the center of the nebula. The image is a Ha image, which shows the extent of the hydrogen emission in the region. The image was taken with a Takahashi CCA-250 astrograph and the QSI683wsg camera (SBIG ST-i guider) on a Paramount ME. The image is a total of 8 hours exposure (24 x 20 min lights @ -20 degrees C, dithered; 21 darks; 126 bias; 128 flats), acquired with MaxIm DL 6.07, and processed with PixInsight 1.8.3.1123 Ripley (x64). Ha filter was an 5nm bandwidth 31 mm Astrodon Gen 2 filter.
