Description

I moved a bit further west of N70, in the same region of the western part of the Large Magellan Cloud, to find another small nebula, like a little pac-man around the open cluster NGC 2147. The cluster is the little one above the stars in the mouth of the pac-man. 

Next to the nebula there is a quite interesting bunch of globular clusters, all of them were identified by the plate solving except the ones on the top. From top right to the left is ESO 57-43 and then ESO 57-50 more to the top centre. On the same line, quite at the left border, the little NGC 2177 also was not labelled.
