This image shows the region around Sharpless 2-101, an emission nebula in Cygnus.
This nebula is located on the right side, just above the center.
The large cluster of blue-white stars on the left is Roslund 5.
This image was acquired using an SBIG STL11000M CCD camera mounted on a Tele Vue NP127is.
This image is a stack of 8 eight-minute exposures taken through a luminance filter,
combined with 4 eight-minute exposures taken through red, green and blue filters for the color data.
The images were calibrated, defect-corrected, stacked and color-combined using AIP4Win Version 2.
The NP127is was autofocused using the Tele Vue Focusmaster.
This image has been resampled down from its original size of 4008x2672.
