Gamma Cygnus Region

Copyright: Richad S. Wright Jr.

This is 15 hours of narrow band data collected with a QSI camera and a Canon 200mm lens on a Paramount MX. Ha, SII, and OIII data were combined to make this color image. Although similar, this is not a Hubble palette image, but I made my own palette which I think provides a more natural look while still providing good contrast to show the different materials in the region.
