Description

This is a section of IC 5068 in Cygnus. I imaged this over three nights in late summer of 2019 but never got around to posting it.

It was pretty faint and I didn't try to push it hard in processing. It kept sitting on my hard drive and every once in a while I'd look at it again and not come up with anything I liked better.

Over time the image has been growing on me so I decided to go ahead and post it.
