Description

I like imaging faint, obscure nebulas .. and this one fits the bill! No pictures of it in Astrobin (until now). This faint region is located in the northwestern edge of Cygnus and is located approximately 12,000 light years away (according to the current best guesses).

This image is 6 hours of Ha, plus 45 minutes each of Oiii and Sii for star color. As much an experiment on star color as an attempt to image the target. The star colors are terrible and I'm going to need to re-think my approach, or leave it monochrome.
