Not too many individual images of this object around - I searched and Googled but couldn’t find any, so maybe this is a world first! ✅
Reminiscent of a middle eastern Hookah Pipe, check out the Ha smoke ring (DEM L99) at 1 O'Clock, (how the heck did that form?) and the mini rosette (DEM L90) at 2:30.
The base N30 A&B has a strong blue O3 region, which is beautifully contrasted by the big yellow star at the centre -Theta Doradus (Mag 4.80).
I spent ages pouring over annotated widefield images looking for a new target in the LMC - googling again since has still found no stand alone colour versions of this Nebula.
The untrodden path does occasionally reward the adventurous with unexpected delights!
And it's cool to find & shoot new targets for a change, so let's give this pretty little Nebula in the LMC some love
Hope you enjoy, kinda reminds me of Deep Space Nine too!
