About this image

An entry in the Sharpless catalogue of HII regions, this one is in Cygnus.

Taken over two nights - 8th 10th October 2021. 7hrs, 25min of exposure - mainly Ha, but 30mins each of RGB to ensure some star colour.

Longer exposures in other images (and a couple of APODs online) show contributions form OIII and SII. I didnt attempt this....
