Description

Hard to show much of the detail of this object in RGB HA, so a close up of it in HA alone. The context in the RGB.

Sh 2-266 is a peculiar object consisting of a cometary nebula surrounding the Be class supergiant MWC 137, which may be generating a strong stellar wind and appears to be
surrounded by a small star cluster. It appears to be located in the
Cygnus (outer) arm.
