IFN nebula in Apus (wide field)

IFN nebula in Apus (wide field)

SXV-H9
135mm telephoto lens at F5.6
30min Luminance + 60min Blue in 10min & 15min subs.

This large field (3.8deg X 2.8deg) of faint integrated Flux nebulosity
(often referred to as Galactic Cirrus) is in the barren southern
constellation of Apus.

IMO, it really should be called the "Running Chicken Nebula"
(instead of the IC 2948 complex near Crux) can you see it? :-)
