McNeil's Nebula

This tiny fan shaped diffuse reflection nebula was found excitingly in Feb 2004 by Jay McNeil using a CCD camera and 7.6cm refractor. It is part of the M78 complex & M78 can be seen upper most in the sketch, MN neb is to the lower right. I made this sketch using the 505mm Netonian and Watec 120N video camera, 0.5x focal reducer and Skywatcher ND filter on Jan 31st 2011
