      Description

      Sits right in the middle of the Milky Way, SH2-82, a.k.a. "little cocoon nebula", is a small emission nebula located in the Constellation Sagitta. The red/pink emissive core is surrounded by blue-ish reflective nebula, and a dark dusty lane strikes right across the FoV, creating an interesting framing. The entire field is with a yellow-ish dusty background tone which is not exactly to my taste...
