This is an odd shaped Sharpless in the southern part of Cygnus with a bit of nebula all around it. The nebula does very well with the hydrogen-alpha filter but is very week in the RGB. Even after an hour I still did not pick up anything, so I ended up mixing the H-Alpha with the red and blue channels to create an enhanced RGB image to start with. The structure of this object looks very interesting so a larger telescope may pick up some more detail, however, this is a very faint object so a long exposure is needed to get that rich contrast that these types of objects tend to have. I took a 15 minute image with the OIII filter and got nothing. A wider field of view would pick up more nebula in the area including the mystery in the lower right corner.

This is a ring nebula associated with a 3000 solar mass molecular cloud and the Wolf-Rayet star WR 130.
