Equipment:

Canon 6D through a William Optics Star 71-II. Tracking accomplished with a Celestron AVX. Guided with an Orion 60mm guidescope and QHY 5L-ii guidecam.

Description:

The Witch Head Nebula resembles the side profile of a witch face and is a faint reflection nebula that is lit by the nearby star Rigel (in the constellation Orion). A bit creepy right?! Cataloged as IC 2118, this nebula is believed to be an ancient supernova remnant. I've rotated the image to show the shape for which this nebula is famous.
