Description

This is a image in narrow band of this are in Cygnus with beautiful interstellear clouds being eroded by the intense radiation of young stars. Emission and dark nebulae make a very nice landscape (starscape?). I have used subframes taken in 2012 together with the most recent ones from 2020. I have slightly trimmed the image.
