I have lost count of how many times I have photographed and, above all, processed this nebula but here I wanted to do something different than usual. In fact, in this case, I put together all my shoots from 2023 (taken with 2 different telescopes) with those of my "astrodelirious" friends Alessandro and Lino in order to reach sufficient depth to go as much as possible into this "stellar nursery". The subject is the nebular complex NGC 7822, also known as the Devil's Head Nebula, for which we have accumulated almost 60 hours of total exposure.
