View Full Version : Unknown Nebula

2011-Aug-19, 01:11 AM
Looking again at my IC 1470/Sh2-156 shot I see an odd orange nearly round disk, fuzz seems to extend to the east from it. Color is very odd for a nebula. It looks fuzzy on the POSS plates. It is located at 23h 05m 25.8s +60d 08m 15s. I've marked it on the attached image near the bottom a bit left of center. Simbad has a couple radio sources a few seconds to the southwest but nothing at this position.

Any ideas? Orange star in dust shell?
