This is my interpretation of LDN1622, a striking dark nebula in the constellation Orion not far from M78. It has been dubbed Boogie Man nebula, but there are other more sinister interpretations as well.

Composed of 16 x 1800 sec of Ha exposure plus 16 x 900 sec for R, G, and B. I used all data to create a synthetic luminance channel and only the RGB frames for color.
