This area, located in the constellation Cygnus, contains both emission and reflection clouds. The blue reflection nebula are cataloged separately (vdB 131 and vdB 132) and together form NGC 6914. Also visible are several bright (LBN 273, 279, 281) and dark (LDN 897, 899 & 900) nebula.

The emission nebulae (shown as red in this image) is comprised mainly of ionized hydrogen and was obtained by imaging through a hydrogen alpha filter (3nm).
