Description

NGC1788 is small reflection nebula near the star Rigel. The other night was the first time I've ever heard of this small nebula. One of the best parts about Astronomy is finding something new to observe/image every night.

This nebula lies 1,300 light years from us. Imaged with a TMB130SS and a Canon 60Da. Total exposure is just shy of 60 minutes.
