Imaged with a Meade DSI Pro III on an Orion ED80 refractor. Schuler Ha, OIII and SII narrowband filters. Eight hours total exposure.
This is a faint emission nebula in Cygnus, listed in the Sharpless Catalogue as 2-112. It was shot with narrowband filters as I would never be able to image it otherwise under my bright suburban skies.
