IC 410, IC 405 (Flaming Star Nebula), and environs. This image is a composite from B&W images taken with the Palomar Observatory's 48-inch Samuel Oschin Telescope as a part of the second National Geographic Palomar Observatory Sky Survey. The images were recorded on 2 types of photographic plates, one sensitive to red light and the other to blue, and then digitized. Credit: Davide De Martin, Skyfactory.org.
