Mid Summer Madness This ongoing Narrowband project includes some of the fainter objects like Sharpless 115 and 116 and many others as well as DWB111 Propeller Nebula in the top left of frame. It is a complex region in Cygnus with supergiant stars and wispy tendrils of hot dust and gas spanning around 12°. Integration time = +- 200 hours.

Sh2-119 Sharpless 119,emission nebular in Narrowband

With added drizzle data for definition and some more SII from last night. I am amazed by what these Chroma filters are capable of.

Finaly complete: Sh2-119 the defuse emission nebular in Cygnus only a few degrees away from the North America Nebula. The object consists mostly of hydrogen, with some sulfur-II and faint amounts of oxygen-III. This is a two panel mosaic.
