IC2118 Witch Head Nebula


Recommended Posts

IC2118 Witch Head Nebula in Orion- unfortunately rather too close to the bright star Rigel for my equipment which caused the artifact on the witches 'chin'. The scope was also unguided - so at 580mm tracking near the celestial equator in 240s subs the polar alignment can't have been too bad. I also noteed some odd star shapes at the edges of the original subs so I suspect the mirror might be pinched- it's been a long time since I used this scope.

IC2118 Witch Head Nebula, Orion- 240s x12, 200mm F2.9 Newtonian (unguided), Fuji S5 Pro camera at ISO2500, from a dark sky site in Mid Wales
