About this object

This is an image of the right wing of the Seagull nebula following up on an image I took last year with a camera that had a smaller field of view of NGC 2327 "Out on a Wing". I called this image "Out on a Wing, part 2" as it covers a much larger area of the sky and takes in the entire right wing. In this image NGC 2327 is the within the dark area below and right of center. CED 90, also named LBN 1039 is the bright emission and reflection area in the upper left. Within CED 90 lies the reflection nebula VdB 94. The large expanse of emission nebulosity (Red) extends from CED 90 through the image with many neat details. Near the bottom center is the reflection nebula VdB 90 which fans out from a star above the small round emission area. To see where other objects and reflection nebula are within the image check out this annotated image. The image was taken over two nights with my 6" Stellarvue SVX 152T and ZWO ASI 6200 camera at a private astronomy ranch in S. Florida near Lake Okeechobee.
