So I decided to catch some photons of the reflection nebula vdB 7with the surrounding dark nebula LDN 1357.

Very nice image, Michael.  Interesting target.  That reflection nebula is very faint.  You did a great job bringing that out.

Great job Michael. I like the background, dust, and star field.

Hi Mike, Kevin and JB,

 

thank you very much for your nice comments.

 

Indeed this nebula is very faint. Image processing was difficult,

I've invested a lot of time in it to bring out some details.

 

 

All the best

Michael
