Here is my initial process of IC2169, a reflection nebula in Monoceros, from last night.

 

I might add some more data to it if sky conditions hold up tonight.  Managed to get 4hr 10min on it last night.

Well done!  Not a common object to see around here.

Thanks!  There are a lot of other beautiful objects in this region of the sky to choose from.

 

Thinking I could have framed this better.  It looks like there are some interesting details to be had off the top and left of the frame.  If I add data tonight I'll probably try to match the framing though and maybe some interesting detail will appear.

Managed to get just over a couple more hours on this the night before last.  6hr 30min total.
