Emission nebula IC 410 and the Tadpoles in HaRGB
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. Picture is a HaRGB image taken with a Takahashi CCA-250 f/5 astrograph and a QSI683wsg camera (SBIG ST-i guider) on a Paramount ME. The Ha channel (used as Luminance) was blended with the RGB synthetic luminance (80:20, respectively) to give a more natural star color (Pixel Math). The image is a total of 11 hours exposure (24 x 20 min Ha, 3 x 20 min each R,G, and B, all binned 1x1 @ -20 degrees C, dithered;), acquired with MaxIm DL 6.07, and processed with PixInsight Ripley (x64). Ha filter (5nm bandwidth), R, G, and B were 31 mm Astrodon Gen2 filters.
