The gamma-Cygni Region
The area around gamma-Cygni (in the constellation Cygnus) is surrounded by a large nebulous region collectively known as IC 1318. The brightest star in the image, gamma-Cygni or Sadr, is a foreground star and is not part of the nebula. Due to the dark lane dividing the nebula, it is sometimes referred to as the Butterfly Nebula. The image is a total exposure of 1 hr 15 min (15 x 5 min lights, 30 x 5 min darks, 64 flats; Takahashi E- 180, Canon 20Da, Paramount).
