Here is a very nice Southern Hemisphere reflection nebula, NGC 5367. It’s part of the cometary globule CG12. To the best of my knowledge, NGC 5367 does not have a common name.

This is an RGB image, with no separate luminance. Years ago Juan Conejero, of PixInsight, convinced me that separate luminance images are often not the best solution. I’ve been doing straight RGB ever since.

The fast Newtonians at Chilescope are a joy. F3.6 is spoiling me.
