IC 410 The Tadpole Nebula lies 12,000 light years away in Auriga. It has been sculpted by stellar winds and radiation from the embedded open star cluster NGC 1893. 

 

This was fun to image over four early mornings starting at 2 am local time. The First Quarter Moon was already setting at that time, which of course is a good thing.

 

Transparency was 6/10 because of fires in California.

Thanks Mert! You should try to image it with the L-Extreme. It really helps to capture the blue OIII.
