NGC 2264, Christmas Tree Cluster

Here is the Christmas Tree Cluster (the bright star forms the base of the trunk) and the brighter portion of the Cone Nebula. Much more exists in the IR spectrum. This would be a good subject for a CCD or modified DSLR.

Unguided, 200 x 15 sec JPEG frames, 1600 ASA, noise reduction enabled.
