Roughly 4X6 degrees centered on Deneb in Cygnus at 20h 41m +45d 16m. The image includes the Pelican Nebula at the lower right. North is to the left. This image was aquired over several nights July 5-12, 2016.

This image was processed to highlight the hydrogen, SII nebula to the north, left, of Deneb. In doing this the stars of that area were supressed. An additional intent was to highlight what appears to be a blue reflective nebula around Deneb. This blue nebula is in addition to the Halpha and dust nebula in that area. The image was framed in an attempt to balance the image with the very popular Pelican nebula without distracting from the lesser known subjects.
