Takahashi Epsilon 180 image

In the Dream Machine image, the bright star at the lower edge of the nebulosity is SAO 57816 at magnitude ~ 5.6.

 

The LXD55 image is a 30-minute exposure on Kodak Royal Gold ASA 400 film.

 

 

The Takahashi image consists of three 15-min exposures combined.

 

 

This image shows the field of IC405 with objects and stars labeled.

IC1318 Sharpless 2-108 (Sh2-108) The region around Gamma Cygnus is a complex collection of stars, gas, dust, emission, dark, and reflection nebulae. IC1318 is the large complex HII (hydrogen alpha) region around Gamma Cygnus (Sadr). It is sometimes known as the Butterfly Nebula. The image is centered Southwest of Sadr and also shows the Crescent Nebula NGC6888.

This black & white image is a composite of three 5-min exposures through an I photometric filter.

 

This color image is an LRGB image using luminance technique with photometric R, V, and B filters.

 

This color image used an I filter substituted for the R filter.
