Barnards 8-13 at the border

This is not quite often imaged area of the sky. It lies at the border of Perseus and Camelopardalis (Giraffe) constellations. This place is mostly occupied by dark clouds. Several of them were catalogued by Professor Barnard, and even more are present as LDN catalogue entries. There is not much more information about these clouds available. Just anonymous dusts in the space.
