IC 1795 is a photogenic nebula located at the corner of the much larger Heart Nebula (Sharpless 190). The small, bright, nearly white part at the right tip is known as NGC 896. This is a complex star-forming region of emission nebulae and dark dust lanes. The open cluster in the lower left is Tombaugh 4, found by Clyde Tombaugh (discoverer of Pluto) in 1941 with the 13-inch telescope at Lowell Observatory. This is a narrowband image with 2:2:2 hours of exposure of H:S:O.
