CommentThe Integrated Flux Nebula (IFN for short) is a high galactic latitude nebulae that is illuminated not by a single star (as most nebula in the plane of the Galaxy are) but by the energy from the integrated flux of all the stars in the Milky Way.
It is difficult imaging target that requires a lot of integration.
