LBN 922, NGC 2264, NGC 2261

Contributor: Dany Duprez

The large dim nebulosity, occupying most of the frame, is LBN 922. NGC 2264 (LBN 911) is the bright nebula left of centre, and NGC 2261 (LBN 920, Hubble's Variable Nebula) is the small feature at the extreme left edge. The view is 3.3 across and shows stars fainter than V=13.5.

nothing more to see. please move along.
