NGC2174, NGC2175, and IC2159

This nebula in Orion doesn't get a lot of attention, but it's a nice one.  NGC 2175 is the open cluster, while NGC 2174 and IC 2159 are designations for the nebulosity.

20 exposures, 4 minutes each = 80 minutes total exposure. .  Canon EOS 20Da (unmodified), ISO 1600, Takahashi TOA 130 (a 5" APO refractor) with reducer, Losmandy G-11 mount.    My current image processing workflow is here.
