This is a practice master file for IC 2118: The Witch Head Nebula. It is a 2-panel mosaic where the Witch Head Nebula, the bright star Rigel, and a lot of space dust in the background is visible.


This image is great for both beginner and advanced astrophotographers, as the quality of this data will give you a good result no matter how deep you go into the processing.


This raw astrophotography dataset was captured from our telescope under Bortle 1 skies. It totals 30 hours of integration time, and is overall an incredible master file.
