Hi all:

vdB 4 is a bright reflection nebula in Cassiopeia, surrounding the star V594.  Just to the south is the large open cluster NGC 225, and Stock 24 is the small open cluster in the upper right quadrant.  The dark nebula just above (north) of vdB 4 is LDN 1291:

Gregg,

Very interesting nebula. It has kind of a milky blue white look. Nice job.

Bernard
