January 2014: tadpoles in a Nebula

This is IC410, also known as the Tadpole Nebula. Can you see why?

I had previously imaged this object some years ago, but this time I got more signal, and I used new processing techniques.


As I used a H-alpha filter, I combined it with the regular R channel to produce a synthetic R. I also used deconvolution while processing and a touch of noise reduction.
