Still learning the hobby and enjoying it immensely. This past week I was imaging the heart nebula (got about 9 hours per panel in a two panel mosaic with my Esprit 100, 2600MCpro, and Optolong L-extreme) and after processing the image noticed what looked like a planetary nebula in the image just to the left of the heart nebula (shown in the box below and blown up in the inset). I attempted annotation in Pixinsight but it didnt identify this fuzzy. So, my question is what is this? Could it be an artifact of processing or is this a known small target near the Heart Nebula?

I know it’s a small target and not an artifact.  Not sure of the details, only reason I know is because I saw a post a few weeks ago asking about this same object, only to find the framing in my 20hr heart project left this gem just out of frame. Darn.
