Description

IC1318 is the extended patch of nebula that surrounds the star gamma Cygni (Sadr).  Given the extended nebulosity in this area as well as some star clusters, this should be a good place to assemble a mosaic over the next several sessions.  This area is also part of the Butterfly nebula.

This image is an HaRGB image of a portion of this nebula.  More to come but this looked nice as is.....
