Flaming Star Nebula in Auriga

Taken a couple of nights ago very surprised at how much I was able to draw out of this one with my processing methods but quite pleased with it.

IC 405 is an emission/reflection nebula in the constellation Auriga, surrounding the bluish star AE Aurigae. It shines at magnitude +6.0. Its celestial coordinates are RA 05h 16.2m dec +34° 28′.
