Comments: I was looking to image some dusty southern nebulae when I stumbled upon this region. It appears to have not been imaged before in color or to this depth. This nebula appears to have components of emission and dusty reflection nebulae. It is number 56 in The velocity field of the outer Galaxy in the Southern Hemisphere. I - Catalogue of nebulous objects, 1986  by Brand, Blitz, and Wouterloot. Some of the dusty nebulae seen here are cataloged in the HMSTG. The image appears speckled from the countless faint stars in the field. As you can see by the exposure time, this object is extraordinarily faint. 
 
The cometary globules 8-10 are some of the dust projections seen towards the right side of the image.
