      Description

      Fascinated by this stunning object near Sadr in cygnus, I now tried a HLRGB version. In addition I added some luminence data for getting the fainter stars in that area too. Using subs of my CT 10 newtonian and my edge 11 again seems to produce a very nice definition in my eyes. Hope you like it....

      CS, Christoph
