LBN777 is a very faint (but cute :-) ) dark nebula lacated in Taurus constellation, about 4,5 degrees from famous Pleiades. This nebula is part of Taurus Molecular Cloud. So far, for me it is the most difficult picture in postprocessing (with OSC camera). It lie about 400 light years from our planet.
