Sometimes I wonder how objects get their unofficial names. LDN1622, also called the Boogeyman nebula, is a dark nebula surrounded by glowing hydrogen gas. There are also two van den Bergh objects in this image. vdB62 is the bright feature lower right from center at the head of LDN1622, and vdB63 is the faint yellow patch to the left of center that looks like a diffuse star.
I've been wanting to image LDN1622 for a long time, but I also have a goal of capturing the van den Bergh catalog so this was a nice project for me. Imaged last November and December, about 19hrs total exposure.
