Zoom-in on the nebular blob lying ~ 60" (50 light-years) north of the Sk-71 51 cluster. The image is based on individual exposures taken through narrow-band filters around H-alpha (red), [O III] (green) and H-beta (blue). The field size is 104" x 101" on the sky, corresponding to roughly 85 by 82 light-years. North is up and east to the left.
