To illustrate David Boyd's recent Forum image of Gyulbudaghian's nebula under better sky conditions than my previous effort.

Location of nebula, RA 20h 46m Dec +67 58, field of view in image is 15 x 15 arc minutes with north up. Reproduced at 150% of original size.

80 minutes exposure and its only just visible! 

Wonder when the nebula will vanish entirely - as it was absent  when we started the observing campaign in 2009.
