Description

IC 426 in Orion
I remember when I started with astrophotography about 30 years ago I saw that tiny smudge of nebulosity on one of the widefields I took on film.
Ever since then I wanted to do IC 426 but never really made it.
It is not an overly spectacular object but I think it has something, plus I was not aware of the background galaxies in Orion.
The image needed quite a bit of editing as a had a bright streak from Epsilon-Orionis running straight through the field.
LRGB 180 60 60 60 min.
