This collection of nebulae lies 6,000 light-years away in the constellation of Cygnus. I like the strong contrasting colours in the image, drawing my eyes into the bright blue reflection nebula nestled in the centre. The image comprises 47 x 5 minute exposures taken from my back garden. The image was processed with Deep sky stacker and Photoshop CS5.
