The LBN 777 nebula, known under nickname “Baby Eagle Nebula”, is naturally much dimmer as it reflects only scattered light of remote stars belonging to our Galaxy. Anybody wanting to make its image must count with very long exposures to capture its dim glow, otherwise the dark nebula simply looks like black patch among stars.
