At Dec -33, this one is in Pyxis near the border of Puppis.

Luminance – 12x600s – 120 minutes – binned 1x1

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

 

240 minutes total exposure – 4 hours

 

Imaged on January 15th and 16th, 2021 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.

Strange but interesting target!  I like how the authors of the paper used the first letters of their last names for the catalog  😛.      Thanks for sharing.
Clear skies,
