Object name: MAGAKIAN13
As you know I like obscure objects. You don't get much more obscure than this nebula. It isn't listed in either NED nor SIMBAD yet is quite a good nebula for imaging. It goes by several rather obscure names such as Magakian 13 and NS 2. It is also in the galactic nebula catalog of galactic nebula cataloged by all other galactic nebula catalogs under the designation GN 00.42.0. Oddly SIMBAD contains many entries from the GN catalog. Most are fainter than this one so why did they miss it? I've seen it described as being a bipolar nebula but I'm not seeing that in my image. The nebula is located in Cassiopeia about 1.4 degrees southeast of the far more famous NGC 281 PacMan nebula. In fact, it was a wide angle shot of the nebula I saw that first introduced me to this nebula. Being so nearly anonymous I wasn't able to find any distant estimate on it. Edit: SIMBAD has now picked it up under GN 00.42.00.02.
