NGC2174 in Orion.
This image is a color composite composed of a stack of 10 eight-minute exposures taken through an IR-block filter,
(shown in the image below), used as the luminance channel, and stacks of 4 eight-minute exposures taken through
red, green and blue filters for the colors.
The image was acquired using a QSI532 CCD camera mounted on a Vixen R200SS, a 200mm f/8 Newtonian reflector equipped with a Tele Vue Paracorr.
The exposures were calibrated, defect-corrected and stacked using AIP4WIN V2.
This image has been resampled down from its original size of 2184x1472.
