Type: reflection nebula
Mag: B=12.36, V=11.49
IC 2067. This is a reflection nebula at Roberts's position. It is brighter on the blue survey plates than on the red, and is brightest to the southwest of the star, just as Roberts describes. However, it actually extends further to the northeast, though is barely visible there. I've taken the position of the star as that for the nebula.
