VDB15 - 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 magnitude 4.6 star in the middle of it all makes this a challenge visually. Even with lots of exposure time, serious noise reduction was needed - as were most of my PhotoShop skills - to make this image look good.
