Bright emission nebula in the constellation cygnus. Does resemble the gulf of mexico. This is of course a coincidence.

Hubble palette image that worked well to revel great detail.

Doubled oxygen and sulphur exposure times to offset the strong hygrogen compoment.

Good object for the novice imager to attempt. Bright, especially the wall.
