Here's my IC405. This was taken from my backyard on the evening of November 16-17, 2012. I used an AT111EDT with a William Optics AFR-IV giving me about f/5.8. This is 35 x 180 seconds at ISO 1600 with a Canon T2i (clear filter mod), approx. 12 darks, flats and bias. Each frame calibrated and stacked in DeepSkyStacker, then stretched and enhanced in Photoshop CS4.

Here's a link to the image on my Astrobin page:
