Dark nebula B143

It’s unusual for me, as of late, to publish images with integration times that are less than biblical, however this time I thought I might content after one night only.

The image above depicts B143, that is the 142nd object of the Barnard catalog, a dark nebula in the constellation of Aquila.

Two thousand light-years away, this a cloud of dust that is not being ignited by any stars, therefore appearing as a black void against the tapestry of stars of the Milky Way.

The image was acquired during the course of five hours, with a classic LRGB composition. You can view it on AstroBin as well.
