About this image.

Named after the principal young stellar object in the central cluster, this is a strange arc shaped nebula with three major YSO's, V1318 Cygni, V1685 Cygni and V1686 Cygni. Also at the centre is a small white reflection nebula. This very obscure object floats in a large sea of Ha nebulosity.
