This is a follow-up of my latest post of Sh-114 (The flying dragon nebula). I noticed a very faint reflection nebula in one corner of this image. So I pointed the telescope more to this nebula … and got even more nebulosity.

These nebula have no name or catalogue number. The part in the upper left corner was visible in my Sh2-114 image and has tendrils which all point to a particular bright star (HR 8157 or HD 203156 or V1334 Cygni) which is actually a classic cepheid variable star (outside the FOV of this image) in a distance of about 3000 lightyears. It may be an accidental coincidence … but really interesting.

So my RASA rigg is down now for maintenance …
