This nebula lies in southern Orion about 4 degrees northeast of the Jellyfish Nebula. Almost always called NGC 2174, modern research shows that in actuality the correct designation for this nebula as a whole is NGC 2175 and that NGC 2174 refers to the tiny yellow patch in the lower left, to the left of the large round orange patch (in the sea of blue) located just below the center of the image. The small bright nebula in the lower left (against the dark sky) is known as GN 06.05.6. The open cluster on the right edge of the nebula is Pismis 27, sometimes called NGC 2175S despite the fact that it is not in the NGC catalogue. This is a 5-hour narrowband image with (2, 1.5, 1.5) hours of H,S,O.
