Hi all,

This time, three images have been uploaded to the same web page. An image of the Cone Nebula, a second image with the Fox Fur Nebula and the mosaic that shows both can be found at:

NGC 2264. The Cone and fox Fur Nebulae

This region, as many emission nebulae, contains numerous interesting objects, mostly Herbig-Haro objects (up to 24 of the 25 Herbig Haro objects present in this area can be found in the mosaic), but also the very active IRS1, with IR emission and embedded with numerous stars in their first stages of formation as well a known MASER source.
