Witch Head Nebula IC 2118 just off Orion's left knee.

on Wednesday, March 1, 2023
The head of the witch is seen in silhouette looking "up". IC 2118 is a faint reflection nebula about 1000 light years away. I shot this while out in the Mojave Desert Preserve in February 2023. The night sky in the desert is really wonderful to photograph since I live on the edge of Los Angeles (bortle 57 I think). This is a stack of 30 photos of 5 minutes each processed using Nebulosity (yes, I still use it), Pixinsight and Affinity Photo.
