This is a lovely but rarely imaged mixed reflection and emission nebula in Camelopardalis.   I obtained the red and blue channels for this image from the POSS and processed them using my Bicolor technique.  This technique can also be used to combine Ha and OIII narrowband data, which I show on my website as well.   I described this technique in an article published in Sky and Telescope in December, pages 121-124, 2006.
