This pair of reflection nebulae, Van den Bergh 14  and 15, resides in the constellation of Camelopardalis. Behind the reflective blue glow, there is a layer of emmisive redness, which is emphasized by the H-alpha data in this project. The post-processing also aimed to enhance the filament structure within VdB 15, which seems to me very similar to what's inside the popular target M45.

 

Thanks for viewing! Clear skies!

Not familiar with this object but it’s been added to my “to image” list. Just hope it turns out half as well as your image. Just incredible-clarity, detail, star shapes and colors! Well done.
