Description
NGC 2264 ( Christmas-Tree Cluster ) Cone Nebula, Fox-Fur Nebula. In Monoceros Imaged on Dec 25-26, Christmas day 2011 from San Diego County, Anza Borrego Desert. I thought it fitting that since it was Christmas day, I’d image the Christmas Tree Cluster. I imaged this North left but put it in this orientation as I like that you can see the Fox Face easer.
