Description

Lynds' Dark Nebula 1622 has been one of my favorite nebulae for years. It´ s very intricate in details. Lot´ s of different structures throughout the object.

The glowing hydrogen gas is predominant in the image. A processing challenge to equalize it, a gorgeous data indeed.

It was a very nice experience to witness the vdB 62 reflection nebula  (just above and right of center) unfolds with distinct colour and brightness during processing. Another gorgeous object for this crop.
