Dan,

 

Very eerie. It looks like a galactic ghost. Nice job.

LBN 917 is an HII (according to Simbad - http://simbad.u-strasbg.fr/simbad/sim-id?Ident=LBN+203.50-30.15&NbIdent=1) about four degrees away from the popular IC 2118 (witch head nebula) in Eridanus. Several denser areas can also be found in the Planck Galactic Cold Clump (PGCC) catalog. I have a feeling that the combination of the IFN and HII could have led to the somewhat odd colors.

 

Luminance – 12x600s – 120 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

 

240 minutes total exposure – 4 hours

 

Imaged on September 26th and 27th, 2019 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG ST-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT90EDT at f/6.7 603mm.
