Re: (IAAC) NGC2313 a Dark Nebula??

I am not sure if you have taken a look at this site


it doesn't have a magnitude, but it does say that it is a bright nebula and 
in the catalog notes it says that it is a diffuse nebula and a star. Thought 
that might be of some help in identifying the object. Best of luck!
