A planetary nebula in the constellation of Cygnus - close to the Crescent Nebula.
Only relatively recently discovered (2007) because of its extreme faintness hidden in bright hydrogen clouds.
Also known as PN G75.5+1.7

A truly amazing image Peter. 43 hours exposure, wow! How did you manage to have clear skies for so long and in summer!

Oh it's easy Ian.  Get two telescopes, stick them in southern Spain where they don't know what clouds are, and where there is still 7 hours of astronomical darkness in mid-summer!
