Object name: VDB014
Designation(s): VDB014, GN03.25.0,
HD 21291 is a B9Ia supergiant star that illuminates a nearby reflection nebula to the southwest. The combination is vdB 14. For the position, van den Berg used the illuminating star's position. Usually that star was in the nebula so that system worked but in this case, the star is so far from the nebula in angular distance I'd miss nearly all the nebula if I put it in the field or even used the published coordinates for vdB14 to center the image. While vdB14 is the common name for the nebula vdB nebula have other catalog names that do center on the nebula itself. So I figured I'd look that up and use that as my coordinates. Turned out it did have one other listing, GN 03.25.0, but that is just a catalog of catalogs so uses similar coordinates from the vdB catalog. SIMBAD shows no other designation for the object, certainly none even close to its actual position. I ended up manually centering it, something I rarely do any more.
