Collinder 399 (The Coathanger), VdB 126 and surrounds

Image of the Coathanger asterism and the area that surrounds VdB126/LBN134 as well as reflection nebula LBN130. I'm also taking the liberty of christening LDN 779/781/782/783 the Shepherd's Crook - we already have a hockey stick and this is far more curved!

 

QHY163M on Canon 200mm f2.8/L II (@f3.85), mounted on GM8.

LRGB: 166 (1m exp): 98:90:88 (in 2m subs) - all at gain:offset=75:27, using Baader filters​​​​​​​.
