      Description

      B150 (LDN 1082) also known as Horsesea nebula due to its shape, is a dark nebula present in the constellation of Cepheus, an area rich in dark nebulosity and dust that are illuminated by the vast starry field present. Difficult subject for urban skies, I had many difficulties in managing colors and luminance trying to bring out the colors without taking three-dimensionality to the powders.
