LBN292

LBN292 is a diffuse, complex emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus. Belongs to the luminous nebulae of Lynds, having a particular characteristic diffuse and irregular dark areas contrast with the intense bright areas that surround it. Lynds' Catalogue of Bright Nebulae (LBN) is an astronomical catalogue of bright nebulae. Objects listed in the catalogue are numbered with the prefix LBN (not to be confused with LDN, or Lynds' Catalogue of Dark Nebulae), though, many entries also have other designations, for example, LBN 974, the Orion Nebula is also known as M42 and NGC 1976. It was originally compiled in the 1960s by Beverly Lynds. Objects in the catalogue include (among other things) the coordinates of nebulae, brightness from 1 to 6 (with 1 being the brightest and 6 being barely detectable), colour and size. Image aligned, integrated and colour mapped by Arc Fortnight, original data downloaded from Telescope.live
