NGC 2264 the Christmas Tree cluster and cone nebula are designated under the same number located in Monoceros constellation. You can clearly see the shape of a Christmas tree in the cluster. There are a few more nebula associated with 2264 the snowflake and Fox Fur nebula.

In this photo you can make out the snowflake and cone. With a modified camera or HA filter the nebula would be more prominent. Shot with Nikond3200 at ISO 1600. Celestron Nexstar 8 and 74/25second subs. About 32 minutes exposure.
