Description

This is a reprocessing of data I acquired about one year ago. In this version I strived to emphasis the remarkable network of dust lanes in this faint nebular region of Cygnus. I have learned after years of astrophotography that data is never truly retired. It lies dormant on your hard drive until it becomes unbearably cloudy night after night, and then is rediscovered.
