LBN 782

This is a rather dim reflection nebula. It is about 450 LY away. The star at the bottom of the blue nebula is a youthful variable star, V1023 Tauri, that is esconced within its yellowish dust cloud and is lighting up the blue nebula with its powerful light.

I took this image over 530 minutes (8.8 hours – Luminance – 16 images of 20 minutes each and 7 images of 10 minutes each for each of 3 colors)
