IC 2395 Open Cluster area in Vela (Binocular view).jpg
The loose open star cluster IC 2395 in Vela near the Vela supernova remnant. The cluster is just left of centre. A small cluster just resolved here at centre is NGC 2660, while a sparser cluster left of IC 2395 is NGC 2670. The orientation is along the Milky Way here, so north is at right, not at top. This is a stack of five 2-minute exposures with the Canon L-series 135mm lens at f/2.8 and Canon 7D at ISO 1250. The field simulates a binocular field of roughly 7°. Bits of the Vela SNR are visible at right. The Pencil Nebula, NGC 2736, is just at the edge of the frame at top. The field is laced with emission nebulosity, some of it cyan in colour.
