The λ Centauri Nebula has no Messier designation, which means it’s one of those Southern-hemisphere-only targets. It’s huge and weird looking, and is a bright and powerful emission with several small, dense “Bok” globules which are the precursor to new baby stars. There is a tiny planetary nebula in the bottom right of this image if you zoom in a bit, which I was surprised to see resolved ok even with the RASA 8″ modest 400mm FOV.

Taken with the Celestron RASA 8″
20 x 5m Ha (Zwo 1600mm CMOS)
20 x 3m RGB (Qhy12 CCD)
Total integration : 2.6 hours.
