Object name: BARNARD161

Designation(s): BARNARD161,

Barnard 161 is yet another dark nebula in the IC 1396 nebula/star cluster complex. Like the others, I took the luminance on a fairly good night but the color data was taken on rather poor nights of high humidity and light fog that seems to have played havoc with my color balance. It\'s likely these various dark nebula that Barnard cataloged against this nebula are all part of a single complex I\'ve not found a distance for it.
