Sh2-114 “The Flying Dragon” Nebula in Cygnus by Guest Host, Mario Motta

October 7, 2019

Don’t try and see this one visually….way too faint.  

Last night was nice, took 4 hour total exposure of Sh2-114 in Cygnus.  (32-inch reflector) 9×9 arc minute multiple shock front of prior supernova explosions, interestingly though primarily hydrogen, some sulfur, practically no oxygen. (Ha, S2, O3 filters)

Called the “Flying Dragon” for its appearance. North is to the right in this image.     

Enjoy….Mario Motta
