Uncommon target - NGC3578/3581

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen many pictures of this nebula around. It's 2° below the Carina nebula and might get overlooked. Probably not the best picture but I thought I share it anyway. The nebula on the right is made up of NGC3576, 3581 and 3603 with "interstellar matter" NGC3579,3582,3584 and 3586 thrown in for good measure. The image also contains a small open cluster (NGC3590) in the center and another OC (NGC3572) on the left. According to Stellarium, the nebula on the left doesn't exist :( .  The nebula is fairly faint so I added 3 hours worth of 300sec subs (ISO1600) to about 2 hours exposure I had from last year.

Thanks for looking!

It's BRAN 342 or NGC 3572B. Yes, you are right, NGC 3572B is not exists in Stellarium because planetarium doesn't support modern additionals to NGC/IC catalogs.
