I've enjoyed looking at images of reflection nebula. I think this is only the second that I've taken - the first being the Iris Nebula. This image of NGC 6914 shows the blue reflection nebulae and some of the reddish hydrogen emission nebulae and together they fill about 1/2 degree wide field. The view spans nearly 50 light-years at the estimated distance of NGC 6914. I did crop the image to get the fov that I wanted.
