Description

This is part of a nebula in the Vela constellation, I got the pterodactyl part from the top blue nebula as in the middle looked similar to a pterodactyl head. Hopefully Astrobin will plate solve and give it's coordinates, if not I can provide them. I got the inspiration from Andy01's Blue Chilli Nebula and was able to bring it up in N.I.N.A's framing wizard, this section was NE I guess you could say from the Blue Chilli and was drawn to that region. With limited viewing in the S-SW due to a palm tree I had to do it over 3 nights.
