Not really. The galaxy is about 100Mly beyond the cometary globule, which is about 1300ly away. The tail of this, like other nearby cometary globules, points away from the Vela supernova remnant.


ASA10N at f/6.8; Moravian G3-16200; Astrodon filters; DDM60. Seeing 3", SQL 20.9, windy night, so not the greatest....


L, R, G, B 1hr each, all binned X2. Image fov is about 40' X 32'. The dusty object is very faint - barely visible in individual colour sub-frames.


All subs were combined to make the final L frame. Processed in Pixinsight
