van den Bergh 152

aka

Cederblad 201

Exposure:                   L = 180 min (Clear) 1x1, RGB 60 min each 2x2
Date:                           Nov 1 & 7, 2010.
Comments:                Also sometimes called 'Wolf's Cave'. Light from the star at the top of the dust column reflects off the dust and produces this reflection nebula. The dust cloud together with the reflection nebula at its top reminds me of the head and neck of an ostrich.
