The various parts of this emission nebula in Orion are named NGC 2175, NGC 2174 and IC 2159, even though it is one and the same object. It is one of the brightest nebulae I have recently imaged. The optical flaws of
the f/1.9 setup are very obvious, but still it opens quite a lot of objects to me that otherwise would not be possible.
Apart from dark/flat correction only a minimal sharpening was done.
Taken from the middle of
Berlin with an 8" LX200 at f/1.9, MX716 camera, video autoguider, Astronomik Halpha filter for 14x10 minutes.
