Thank you for supporting this wiki project
IC 405 also known as "The Flaming Star Nebula" is located in Auriga constellation, in an area pledge of nebulae because of the Milky Way presence. In this image, we see the emission nebula with high contrast and detail. The filter applied in this picture is an hydrogen alpha (Astrodon Ha 5nm) that transmits a narrow bandwidth of light centered on the H-alpha wavelength.

The picture was taken by Arasteo, from Kallithea, Athens, Greece. He used a William Optics FLT110, a 3 element air-spaced triplet refractor and a SBIG ST10XME camera mounted on a EQ6 PRO. He made 8 subframes of 10 minutes each.
