Are you referring to the bright object peeking out from behind the brown gas cloud?

Hi Inaki,

 

  That is Gyulbudaghian's Nebula (GM1-29), which is essentially a variable cometary reflection nebula associated with the young eruptive variable star PV Cephei.  Here is an image that I took of this object back in 2002:

The object happens to be the same type object that I discovered back in 2004 that now bears my name:

which is similarly illuminated by V1647 Orionis:

Great shots by the way!
