Hi all. I used my Starlight Xpress SXVF-H16 camera to image this interesting area of the sky. This image shows many objects, including the star cluster IC1369 (above center right), Barnard 61 (or perhaps B361 aka LDN970 - large dark area in lower center), planetary nebula PLN 89-0.1 (red area above left center), dark nebula LDN975 (just right of open cluster), dark nebula LDN967 (below brighter pair of blue and yellow stars, and dark nebula LDN964 (extreme lower right corner).
