VdB9 is a very weak reflection nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. The entire region is permeated with dust, which you see in the background. The dark nebula directly near VdB 9 is LDN 1357 - the one lower left is LDN 1358.

In this long exposure, the dust reflects the light of the stars and appears in yellow, brown or blue color tones.
