This region of Cygnus west of Deneb is anchored by the bright and colorful stars 30 and 31 Cygni. There are many types of interesting and overlapping nebulae in this region including many HII regions catalogued by Dickel, Wendker, and Bieritz, as well as more recent discoveries such as the giant supernova remnant known as G 82.2+5.3 and the much smaller possible planetary nebula PN PM 1-320. This was my most challenging photo yet with more than 46 hours of integration, and the time-consuming process of creating a seamless 8 panel mosaic. This image has been my sole focus from June through November.
My neighbor Rachel David for being my excellent assistant and "second in command" throughout the summer.
Sharon Roat, Mt. Cuba Astronomical Observatory, and Frank Colosimo (Blue Mountain Vista) for allowing me to capture many hours of this mosaic away from the streetlights of Newark.
The Delaware Astronomical Society's Astrophotography Special Interest Group for all the advice and support.
My friends Andrew and Kurt for their feedback on my work-in-progress.
and Maggie Thrash for supporting me in all things.
Description: Annotated using the following catalogs: New Galactic Catalog (NGC), Lynds' Bright Nebulae (LBN), Lynds' Dark Nebulae (LDN), Dave Green's supernova remnants (G), Preite-Martinez' Possible Planetary Nebulae (PM), Barnards' Catalog of Dark Markings in the Sky (B), and the Dickel, Wendker, Bieritz catalog of the Cygnus X region (DWB).

If this user has been harassing you, and you shadow-ban them, all their activities on your content will be invisible to everyone except themselves.
They will not know that they have been shadow-banned, and the goal is that eventually they will get bored while having caused no harm, since nobody saw what they posted.
You will remove your shadow-ban on this user, and their comments, messages, etc, will appear again on your content.
Such limitation improves the website as a whole by discouraging people from creating fake accounts to like their own images. Thank you for understanding!
