Another Barnard dark nebulae with an incorrect position ... My software (Megastar v5.0.12) lists B 9 at 04h 19m 00s, +55d 04m 00s, as does most online sources I checked.
The CDS list the center of B 8 at 04h 17m 48s, +55d 13m 59s ... about the middle right of my image; The center of B 9 at 04h 17m 59.9s, +55d 00m 00s ... just out of my field to the south. So this image is really a poorly centered B 8 ... it needs to be re-imaged.
See this link for a CDS listing of objects in this area. There are at least five Barnard dark nebulae within this 3 degree area of Camelopardalis.
