Some Info about LBN 468 / Herbig-Haro 215:

Reflection and dark nebulae in Cepheus cataloged by Beverly T. Lynds Catalogue of Bright Nebulae 1965 and Catalog of Dark Nebulae 1962. Herbig-Haro 215 is also called Gyulbudaghian’s Nebula. This little-known variable reflection nebula is similar to Hubble’s variable nebula. This nebula changes brightness and shape over many months or years. Armen Gyulbudaghian is a Russian astronomer at Byurakan Observatory. He discovered this nebula in 1977, Apparently during a survey for new Herbig-Haro objects. The object as a whole is known as HH 215; the reflection nebula is officially cataloged as GM 1-29 (Magakyan — the “M” — was a co-author on the discovery paper). At the heart of the Herbig-Haro object lies the variable Herbig AbBe pre-main sequence star PV Cephei. This is a newly formed star that is surrounded by a rotating disk of material. At right angles to this disk are two jets of material, streaming away from the star at high speeds
