Peter,
Looks like the Dolphin head nebula ?
Stellarium has a few objects in the Southern Hemisphere incorrectly labelled ( eg The Keyhole Nebula which is incorrect, itís actually Gabriela Mistral nebula )

Hello, Peter

Remember a couple of things

1. You can toggle object names using "D" on your keyboard.
2. To enable objects that still don't appear, go into your sky/viewing options and ensure you select the appropriate catalogue. In this case, being a Sharpless object, select SH2. Experiment with this until your object appears for any other target. See screenshot.

Thanks for the replies, appreciated.
I wasn't actually aware of toggle object names using "D" on your keyboard
I will have to remember that, appreciated.
Also option 2, I will have to experiment a bit more with those.
But very much appreciated with all replies.
Thanks.
Peter.
