Description

Portrait of Cygnus in Ha and Oiii, acquired with a side-by-side dual 24mm lens rig. Oiii was a little janky as I had to use my OSC camera for it. There are many well popular objects in this image, including:

Elephant Trunk Nebula (bottom left)

North America Nebula (bottom center)

Veil Nebula (bottom right)

Crescent Nebula (1 o'clock of center)

and of course Sadr, Gamma Cygni, and NGC 6914 in the center.

I bumped up the Oiii (blue) - there's a weird looking "bubble" at top right. Is that really a thing, or is it some kind of reflection? Anybody know?

Thanks for looking!
