This interesting region in an arm of the Large Magellanic Cloud contains several contrasting objects. NGC 2020 is the large very turbulent Ha emission nebula, and beside it is a more unusual oxygen emission nebula lit by young blue stars. The smaller, also very turbulent, Ha cloud is NGC2040. There is a number of other interesting objects scattered through the image.
The data for this image was taken over three fairly difficult nights characterized by intermittent cloud, wind, and high humidity.
2 hours RGB, and 2 hours Ha make up the image. It is an LRGB combination using Ha and R data for the L channel. ASA10N, DDM60 unguided.
