The Pencil Nebula

One more image ... it's been a weekend of processing! This is the Pencil, taken from the 'burbs of Adelaide. So quite a bit of data, and yet still not that great a result.

About 20 hours each of OIII and Ha.

Astrobin version is here.

Thanks Geoff. "Scribbles" ... I like it. Continuing Mike's pencil-themed puns

I must correct myself, that is actually Herchel's Ray, NGC 2736 (aka the Pencil Nebula). The Witches Broom is NGC 6960, and is also known as the Western Veil Nebula.

Thanks Marc. Yes, on previous attempts at this I didn't go deep enough to get them. Very intricate tendrils.
