NGC 2022 (2013)

Not very bright but still easy to spot, so says Wikipedia. I wonder if it’s got fliers like NGC 3242. Could be hard to see with the filters used. You might notice that the photo on the Wikipedia article shows the edge of the nebula cut off a bit. There’s some newer data in the archive that doesn’t cut it off so I used that instead of the old WFPC2 data.

Red: F814W (jb5723020)
Green: Pseudo
Blue: F555W (jb5723030)

North is NOT up.
