Emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus.

Imaging a fainter nebula to see what my new optical tube is capable of. Fast F2.8 optics so only needed a single night worth of data.

Thought this would be too faint for my setup so image worked out better then expected. Surprised this nebula isn’t on the IC or Sharpless catalogue.

Saw this object on the internet. Internet an excellent place for researching new ideas for imaging targets.

Ha/oiii/oiii image with 3 hours and 20 minutes of data. 21 x 5min Ha & 19 x 5min Oiii unbinned.
