Dark Nebula near IC 1396
Also designated as van den Bergh 142
Exposure: L = 120 min 1x1 (Clear - no filter), RGB = 60 min 2x2
Date: Sept. 4-21, 2008.
Comments: Some people think the left end of the 'trunk' looks like a parrot's head looking downward. My wife sees a horse and rider entering the red nebula from the right.
