Description

A very cluttered star field in Cygnus. Lots of textures and wisps of dust. This nebula is pretty nondescript and doesn't have a cutesy name. Just something different to look at.

Description: This object is in the area of the sky I call Zombieland. I'm not sure how to describe this nebula other than say "It's gotta lot of dark wisps". There is plenty of texture there but it's just not an eye catching gas cloud that can be easily recognized. I reprocessed this from last year's data.

Description: Tried to clean this up some more. It is now a HaSHO, tone mapped and a better crop.
