van den Bergh 41 (HD 244068 and others) is the star and faint reflection nebula in the center of the image. The whole field is a bit reddened due to dust illuminated by our galaxy. A couple of the denser areas are designated in the Planck Galactic Cold Clump (PGCC) catalog. These are located in Taurus – a couple of degrees from M1.
