LBN 1122 - a molecular cloud in the constellation Libra

Short description:

The molecular cloud LBN (Lynds Bright Nebula) 1122 in the constellation Libra is a relatively structureless but sharply defined nebula. Only at the upper (northern) edge some finer filaments show up. Lynds rates this nebula 4 out of 6 on their brightness scale (6 being the faintest). Our image still shows some faint background galaxies of the 16th and 17th magnitude.
