Identify an Object in my Image

Hello;

Any chance anyone can help identify an object in my recent IC 1805 image or tell me what is a good method to find out? I've tried SkySafari Pro and Astrometry and neither had the object identified.

https://www.astrobin.com/54mvco/ in this image, if you look above the top center of the heart you'll see a star with an elliptical blue hue around it. It's located between the heart top and the top edge of the frame.

Thanks

Hello,

This must be the planetary nebula WeBo 1.

I found it by getting its approximate coordinates using Stellarium and then I performed a coordinate query at SIMBAD.

SIMBAD result

Ok I was just informed this is a planetary nebula called WeBo1 first identified in 1995, pretty little nebula!
