Description

This is a full res crop depicting the rather oddly colored star that I found while panning around the full res image. It may just me a neat blue star but with the color I am wondering if this may be an obscure tiny planetary nebula. Just wondering..............

If anyone can provide some input on what this may be, assuming it isn't a star, that would be greatly appreciated.
