    Hi maxblanken from Belgium !

    The bright blue object is a foreground star from our galaxy.

    Btw, always classify the object in the center of the image. Here you have a fuzzy galaxy, possibly a spiral.

    But of course you can always ask about other objects in the image ! 😄

    Happy hunting !
