NGC2264 The Christmas Tree and Cone Nebulae

This image, taken on the night of 7 January 2016, consists of 22 x 600s through my Megrez 90 scope and 0.8x focal reducer with a 3nm Ha filter.


The cone nebula is on the right. In the middle region it is possible to see the head of a donkey or the head of a fox.

The picture below shows where they can be found. It does require a little imagination.
