The Dark Doodad Nebula

This long dark nebulae measures nearly 3 degrees in length (perfect for AUS-2). The nebula doesn't actually have an official name, however, I think the "popular" name is quite fitting. To the rear of the trailing end is NGC 4372, a small globular cluster; thanks to Ian Howarth for reminding me!

Despite the 4 x 600s LRGB, I feel it could do with another round of exposures to bring out the feinter dark brown nebulosity that trails behind the body of the nebula.
