LBN 1089   LRGB

Lynds Bright Nebula 1089 is a very faint cloud of dust located in southern constellation Antlia. This object at -29 declination only reaches about 20 degrees in altitude from my imaging location. Lynds’ gives this one a 5 out of 6 on the brightness scale (with 6 being the dimmest). This is by far the faintest object I’ve tried to image so far. I had to stretch the data more than normal to get this result. This is another one of the ‘bright nebula’ that are found on the Astronomy League’s Bright Nebula Program. I could not find any other images of this one.

The edge-on galaxy at the bottom right is IC 2531.

Luminance – 12x600s – 120 minutes – binned 1x1
