The Cone nebula, Trumpler 5 and IC2169 all together in Monoceros

Had some great imaging weather the past couple of evenings, clear, dark, cold, and – no Moon!  Managed to grab some data in the IC2169 region in Monoceros to go with some earlier data already acquired on the Cone nebula – result, a panoramic view of the Cone nebula/IC2169 region in Monoceros with the nice blue of IC2169’s reflection nebulosity contrasting with the red emission nebulosity of the Cone nebula.  And in the middle we have a beautiful golden open cluster – Trumpler 5 🙂
