VDB14-15 - Faint nebula in Camelopardalis
  • Description: Faint reflection and emission nebula in Camelopardalis. This nebula is a bit off the beaten track. Very faint nebula with a naked eye star in the middle of it all makes this a challenge visually. Even with lots of exposure time, noise reduction was needed to make this image look good! In the upper left you can see the edge of another emission nebula, Sh2-202.
