The nebula was discovered on 3 August 1826 by James Dunlop. Together with NGC 2020 it makes up what is called the Cosmic Reef. This image was created from 5 subframes of different wavelengths from the UVIS channel of the Hubble Wide Field Camera 3 These raw data files were downloaded from the Hubble Archive and processed using PixInsight. The UV data was mapped to the 3 visual channels (Red/Green/Blue) to maximise the detail inside this amazing object. Image produced from raw data downloaded from MAST: the Barbara A.
