Mosaic of IC 1795, 1805 and 1848

This is a fine emission nebula located in the galactic plane, not far from the h+chi Per double cluster. IC 1795/1805 on the right is also known as the "Running Dog Nebula".

The image is a mosaic of four exposures and was created using the same technique that helped assembling the Milky Way Panorama.
