LDN 1152 (The Architeuthis Or Giant Squid In Draco Cepheus)
 
 
 
LDN 1152,RNO 124 (" The Architeuthis Rex or Giant Squid ".This was my first impression when processing the image. An Architeuthis Rex expelling ink all around ). Maybe too excesive imagination... :P
 
RNO 124 :As a whole, this nebula has a conical shape, with a star IRAS 20359+6745  at its apex. It is possible to separate two distinct reflection structures in the nebula. The former is represented by a regular cone with an opening angle of about 60 degrees and with straight walls, which are extended up to 2ยด.
