Less known part of the nebula to the left from the blue patch in
the image center is nicknamed Fox Fur Nebula, again because
of visual resemblance of the gaseous clouds with fox head.
The NGC2264 star cluster/nebula presented above was acquired by
Martin Myslivec with his G3-16200 camera on 30 cm corrected Newtonian
telescope. Image was combined from red, green and blue exposures,
taken to capture proper colors, and the narrow-band images acquired
through Hα filter, which greatly enhances the
nebula structure. Total exposure time is 30 hours.
