Witch head nebula

Witch head Nebula
I found this image very hard to take in suburban Perth. Taken with a
80mm Astrograph LRGB 12 Hours of imaging I think it looks ok not sure
comments would be helpful. You can see on astrobin https://astrob.in/390123/0/

That's a fantastic result Martin. I've tried this object several times and appreciate how difficult it is to capture. You've done so well to capture it with this much detail under suburban skies, great choice of filter. My only negative about this shot is it looks a bit too blue but that's just my opinion, others may disagree. I also like your framing, was it cropped?
There a few faint fuzzies in there too.

That neb is pretty faint, so a tough one to tackle from a suburban sky Martin... but not bad

I agree with the others - a very good job done on a very difficult target from suburbia. I captured it a couple of years ago from the dark sky site at Wiruna with my old gear and yours is much better in my opinion. I should have another go now that I also have an ASI1600mm pro.

Thanks Michael and Thanks Bruce comments are always helpful as Astrophotography is a big learning curve.

Thanks Greg for your feedback I think luminosity only looks good on the Witch Head it is hard to get colour out. Quite a difficult object and unusual
