Job 9:9

9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

Witch Head Nebula

This is an object that I've been wanting to get for a long time, but havent had the equipment to do such a wide field shot until relatively recently.  The Witch Head, IC2118 is a couple of degrees long, and is extremely dim.

For this faint reflection nebula, I used an Astronomik CLS clip in Canon filter on the T3.  It consists of 25 - 5 minute exposures from my suburban sky.  I could not detect it at all with no filtering.


I'm sure that from a darker site, I would be able to get more detail in the cloud formation, but I was able to get the basic shape.
