IC2169 reflection/emission/dark nebulosity region in Monoceros

A most fantastic evening’s imaging last night – 5 and a half hours of data on two objects.  The first was in Monoceros (next door to Orion) where I captured this fascinating, and very busy region around IC 2169.  We have emission, dark and reflection nebulosity here all vying for attention.  This was 16 subs at 10-minutes per sub with the Hyperstar III added (using Registar) to some earlier data taken in the same region.  Last night the camera was in portrait mode whereas for the earlier data it was in landscape mode, hence the almost square result in this image (the overlap of the two).
