Description

VdB 152 is the reflection nebula at the tip of the dark Bok globule Barnard 175. The small, bright red object just below VdB 152 is the Herbig-Haro object HH 450. The FOV also contains red Ha filaments from a supernova remnant. The only thing missing is a big galaxy (there are a few tiny ones...)
