Messier 78 (NGC 2068)

The data from DSW are so good I just couldn't wait until this object is completed, I had to try my hands on it! M78 (NGC 2068) about 10 lightyears across is the brightest diffuse reflection nebula in the sky located east of Alnitak. I intentionally left a satellite trail in the pic because we can expect 10 times more to come in the next decade, so get used to it. M78 is home of the Land of Light and the Ultras in the TV series Ultra. Also Nadia in The Secret of Blue Water came from M78 to Earth thousands of years ago.
