Strings of complication and the lost balloon nebula.

 

This is one of the more unusual structures, I found on my journey across the constellation of Cygnus. July and August 2016. I suspect this is the delicate imprint of an ancient supernova at work. This structure may well be a new discovery as I can find no reference to it existence anywhere. Any Planetary Nebula experts out there, please chime in. :)

It is visible only in the OIII band and extremely faint.
