Comment : The nebula IC 417 is small and weak. It's in the center but no trace of it. Mostly because of the lack of H-Alpha sensitivity of my equipment. A lot of improvement can be done here.

What's more interesting is the surrounding to the nebula, se the plate solve here: IC 417. The open starclusters NGC 1912 / M38 and NGC 1960 / M36 are beautiful. The star clusters M36 and M38 are also on one of my very early digital astrophotos: M36, M37, M38 from 2008.
