Description

Lurking between the North America Nebula and the Pelican Nebula is ... the Deadpool Nebula! 

These two eyes have always seemed to pop out to us in widefield images of the area, so we unofficially named it Deadpool. I had a few spare hours and scooped up 5 hours on this delightful little dandy. One eye / star (Cyg 57) is brighter than the other, and I think that's in character.
