Often overlooked in the constellation Cygnus is the faint emission nebula IC 5068. Two of its closest celestial neighbors, the North American and Pelican nebulae, get top billing but this
beautiful object shines proudly in its own right. Curtain like wisps of dark dust fall across this cloud of ionized hydrogen making it a very intriguing target to image.
This is a narrowband image. A modified Hubble palette was used.
