ngc2264 - the Cone Nebula

By chedd  
This beautiful object is located in the constellation of Monoceros, East in the skies of the U.K at this time of year. This is just under 2 hours of exposure time taken with an old Canon 350D and 81mm zoom lens at a focal ratio around 470mm.

If you are remotely interested I have posted further information about how I made this image on my blog here

Thanks for looking Smile
