33hrs and 40min exposure of a reptile looking cometary molecular cloud with two condensation zones swimming in waves of red, emission nebula in Lacerta, ionized by the off-screen 10 Lacertae. The distance to the the cloud has been under discussion but fairly recent estimates from 2013 put it at 360±65 pc from earth. The small x-mark on the lizard LBN437's forehead is the Herbig-Haro object named HH398 with the star V375 Lac in the center.
