Finally a new image! This is NGC 2174 or the Monkey Head Nebula named because of its resemblance to a monkey's head. It is an a star forming Hydrogen emission nebula located in the constellation Orion and is associated with the open star cluster NGC 2175. The nebula lies approximately 6,400 light-years away from Earth and would take up an area larger than the moon if you were able to see it with the naked eye.
It was pretty easy to locate and imaged the Ha around the same time I did the Jellyfish. Because of the strong Ha component, I decided to use the UHC filter to collect the color rather than a broadband filter.
