Westbrook Nebula, CRL 618

About this image

The tiny object at the centre of the image is the protoplanetary nebula CRL 618, the Westbrook Nebula. Callum invited observations of it but decided against making it the November Deep Sky Section object of interest as it is very small and faint. He is right! I've put a magnified view in the bottom left hand corner but it really needs a much, much bigger image scale.
