Sh2-122 in Pegasus - LRGB

Sh2 122

I don't know what to call this one. A Dark Nebula? It is a cloud of gas being illuminated by the bright star Markab in Pegasus. There is no narrowband contribution from this gas cloud. Colour is muted but one needs a LOT of luminance data to tease out any structure. It is FAINT. There are a TON of faint galaxies in the background if you want a challenge!
