IC2118 (2017)

Object IC2118, "Witch Head Nebula"
Description The Witch Head Nebula is a large reflection nebula near Rigel in the constellation Orion. It was captured here with a telephoto lens at a focal length of 200mm. My red subexposures were unfortunately out-of-focus causing red rings around most stars.
