IC 2631 is a blue reflection nebula in the far southern constellation of Chamaeleon. It surrounds a young T Tauri star HD973000, about 500 light years away. It lies in the Chamaeleon Cloud Complex which is a large star forming region that includes the Chamaeleon I, Chamaeleon II, and Chamaeleon III dark clouds. The Chamaeleon Complex occupies nearly all of the constellation Chamaeleon and overlaps into Apus, Musca, Carina and Octans. The dust partially or nearly totally obscures the stars within and behind it.

Details:
Mount AP900
Exposure 12.5 hours LRGB
Telescope Planewave 12.5" CDK
Camera FLI Proline 16803
FOV 49' x 49'
Processing PixInsight

 

Hope you like it

Thanks a Mike. It’s a pity I wasn’t aware of the little galaxy, otherwise I would have framed it slightly differently.
