The Witch Head Nebula

 

Acquisition details:

  • 110 x 30 sec subs @ ISO1600 f4.5 1 x flat frame
  • Nikon Ai ED IF 300/4.5 lens
  • Sony A7rII
  • Skywatcher - Star Adventurer with counter weight
  • Shot in rural Germany (bortle 6/7) on 29th of December 2016 from 2000h to 2150h

I was happy to see some nebula details until I saw the NASA version. Focus was slightly off and I think that is the reason I was not able to bring out better star colors. The lateral chromatic aberrations mixed with the actual star color to form one single and false color disc. I hope you like it despite my errors in the field.

Pretty cool that you captured the nebula.

 

The Pleiades​ shot is fantastic!
