Object name: SH2

Designation(s): SH2, 093_LBN146,

Sh2-93 is also known as LBN146. I can\'t find much at all on this emission nebula that is located in the constellation of Vulpecula a short distance east from SH2-90. Galaxy map has two distance measurements for it. One of about 12,000 light years and another of 8500 light years. It seems to prefer the latter. This is more in line with nearby SH2-90 they put at about 7800 light years. The nebula contains the hidden infrared star cluster [BDS2003] 16. The nebula is said to shine by the light of an 09V star but I\'m unable to determine which one it is. It is [F89b] S93 1 for those with better catalogs than I have.
