A cosmic millipede

Vikas Chander, taken from Rio Hurtado, Chile

The Dark Doodad Nebula in Musca is an appealing binocular target, stretching 3° across the southern sky. But it reminds this imager more of a millipede, meandering around the globular star cluster NGC 4372. The LRGB image was taken in two panels of 25 hours of exposure each with a 6-inch scope.
