Description

Please, use a link under the image above to see more images and info about this object.

I have spent this Autumn season by shooting rarely imaged dimmer targets around Cygnus. So far I have stayed at Western parts of Cygnus nebula complex. This time I picked a target form the Eastern side, Sh2-114, the Flying Dragon Nebula. There are very few images out of this dim nebula.

This is a preliminary processing, I will shoot more exposures for this, whenever weather up here allows me to do so.
