Jkulin Posted May 17, 2021 Share Posted May 17, 2021 I started this on the 28th February 2021 and it took me until Mid March to grab all the subs. I was just lucky with the framing as it was exactly how I wanted it. Initial processing showed some nice clear data and due to personal circumstances I could not commence completion until today, I have spent the best part of the weekend processing and processing until I felt I couldn't get much more. I have loads more images to process, so just taking my time to give the all the justice they deserve. In all about 10 hours of data, but it has taken twice that long to process. Captured with my rebuilt 656 Carbon 10" Newtonian, Moravian G2-8300 MkII, iOptron 120EC, Ultrastar Guide Camera, Pegasus UPB, QHY OAG, Chroma 2" LRG and NB 3nm filters.

It was discovered by Giovanni Batista Hodierna before 1654 and independently discovered by Karl Christian Bruhns in 1857. NGC 2175 is at a distance of about 6,350 light years away from Earth. The nebula surrounding it is Sharpless catalog Sh 2-252. There is some equivocation in the use of the identifiers NGC 2174 and NGC 2175. These may apply to the entire nebula, to its brightest knot, or to the star cluster it includes. Burnham's Celestial Handbook lists the entire nebula as 2174/2175 and does not mention the star cluster. The NGC Project (working from the original descriptive notes) assigns NGC 2174 to the prominent knot at J2000 06h 09m 23.7s, +20° 39′ 34″ and NGC 2175 to the entire nebula, and by extension to the star cluster. 9 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
