NGC 1788

NGC 1788

NGC 1788 is a reflection nebula in the constellation of Orion.
It is rather sharply defined on its southwest perimeter where it is flanked by the dark nebula known as Lynds 1616.
Lynds 1616 is apparently part of NGC 1788. The brightest involved star is 10th magnitude. (WIKI)
The lower dark nebula is Lynds 1615.
Many galaxies are hidden in the image - can you see the chain of galaxies at the left?
