First, I thought it was just a molecular cloud, and more detail, I could see a bar feature, so it’s mor of a galaxy

It’s unfortunate that Simbad has no information about this area.

It stands out a bit better in the riY layer, I think:
https://www.legacysurvey.org//viewer/?ra=121.7762&dec=-27.6394&layer=decaps2-riy&zoom=13&sga-parent
where I think I can see a lower lobe as well as a brighter core.

After looking at the riY layer, I’m going to say it’s probably a galaxy. I’m not fully certain about this though.
