Comment: This is a hybrid-composite mosiac image using data from two different telescopes and cameras. vdB 130 is a small, faint, moderately red reflection nebula surrounding star BD +38 3993. Size 1.2 arcmin. It is in the right upper quadrant of the image and surrounds the small open cluster of the same designation. See cropped image below. NGC 6888 has been enhanced with additional H-alpha and OIII data. See the H:O:O image below. It is interesting but, of course, the reflection nebulae can not been seen in it. Narrowband filters really cut out the stars however!
