 "The Dust Bowler" - VdB7 - VdB8 - VdB9 
Low Resolution            Mid Resolution            High Resolution


Very Faint reflection and dark Nebulae in Cassiopeia. VdB7 is to the right, while vdB 9 is center and vdB 8 is on the left. All the region is filled with a lot of dust on the background. Work in progress on find better text description. In my imagination VDB9 always be the hand of a bowler throws the ball towards the left of the picture, I mean bowl for the beautiful yellow star on the center-left, which is also preceded by a trail of dust.
