CG30, CG31A-E, CG38 – Cometary Globules in the Gum Nebula and more Dark Nebulae in Puppis – IAS Remote Telescope, Hakos, Namibia – Jan 2024 – LRGB v1

New data from the IAS remote telescope, comprising 2 panels for this mosaic. Somewhat uncharted territory in Puppis, at least regarding the NGC and IC catalogs, with several cometary globules in the outskirts of the very large Gum Nebula.

More scientific details about the objects can be found in this older publication by ESO, see page 71, section 2.1.4 CG30/31 and HH12.
