Description

Like two little jewels are the reflection nebulae NGC 6914 and VDB 132 in the center of the extensive H-alpha region. The "blue pads" gives the image a nice color contrast and make this region so photogenic for astrophotographers. Of further interest are the bipolar nebula GN 22.20.7 and the star V 1515 Cyg (FU Orionis object) and as a bonus is also the open clusters Dolidze 8 in the image.
