This is Sharpless 112, yet another nebula in Cygnus. I've shot this in SHO but the blend used is 90/10 SII/Ha for Red, SII/OIII for Green, and OIII for Blue. Luminance is all Ha.

The surface brightness is relatively low compared to other Nebulae in Cygnus. 28.66 hours of 20 minute subs were used. Ha 24, OIII 33, SII 29. Planewave CDK14 and SBIG STX 16803.

Not much info out there on this one. I've read conflicting commentary about with the bright star is part of the nebula or unrelated.
