vdB 152 Nebula

This very faint nebula in Cepheus. IT took several night to gather all material here. Most far from even what I would call good. The VdB 150 nebula in truth is only the blue nebula at the top, while the other blue one on the bottom is VdB 149. The large dust nebula is catalogued as LBN 535. On the right the PGC 67671 galaxy is visible through the dust that is absorbing its light and making yellowish.
