This is a narrow-field image of the Cocoon Nebula, IC 5146. It started out as an SHO Hubble Palette narrowband image. You don't see Hubble Palette images of the Cocoon, probably because of visually unappealing color. But with the addition of RGB stars and several layers of color also from the RGB image, it looks a bit more presentable.
