Witch Head Nebula - IC 2118

Happy Halloween - the Witch Head nebula in Orion from AUS-2. This is an eerie but faint reflection nebula illuminated by nearby Rigel. This is my first image using the Advanced Request option. I must say it worked out quite well for such a faint object. That's why I did 2 hours and 20 minutes of imaging time (Lx80 and RGBx20).
