Image: The Tadpoles IC410

IC 410 is an emission nebula approx. 1200 light years away from the Earth. It spans 100 light years. A young star cluster called NGC 1893 is embedded in IC410. Its stellar winds distort the denser gas clouds that form the "Tadpoles" visible in the middle of the image.
Exposure data: RGB series 5x1200s with an OSC CCD camera, median stack, taken at low attitude 5°-36° degrees, and good atmospheric conditions.
