IC 410, NGC 1893, and the "Tadpoles"
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 total of 9 hours 40 minutes exposure with TeleVue 140 f/5 refractor and SBIG ST2000xcm camera on a Astro-Physics 1200 mount (58 x 10 min lights at –20 degrees C; 20 darks; 64 bias; 64 flats; Images graded in Images Plus 5.0 and calibrated, aligned, integrated, and processed in PixInsight 1.8; final adjustment of star color with Photoshop CC)
