This is Ngc 6914. A reflection and emission nebula in Cygnus. It lies approx 6,000 light years from earth. Embedded Cygnus OB2 stars provide the blue starlight strongly reflected by the dusty clouds.

Hope you like it.
Richard.

Lovely image. The blue part of nebula stands out well, nice star colour.

We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills

Serene colours, Richard.
And a few double stars thrown in.
