NGC6960 – Witch's Broom Nebula Really delighted with this one. We had a lovely evening where I could get some great subframes, it was stable and nice and clear for a change. This is a supernova remnant in the constellation of Cygnus. Its original host star exploded some 5000 - 8000 years ago. It is roughly 1,500 light year away from us.
