Description

Sh2-124 and Surrounding Nebulae in Cygnus

The surrounding nebulae are very dim. The faster f/4.7 optical system and low noise camera were able to capture a substantial amount of the background gas and dust with a total integration time of 24 hours.

Color palette is the Hubble SHO that has been slightly modified.

The true FOV with the “fast” CDK14 was much larger as shown below. I will post another version of this target with a wider FOV as well.
