DWB 111, the Propeller Nebula

Propeller Nebula (DWB 111, MRSL 497). This S-like formation is part of the much large area of emission nebulae in Cygnus. There are very little information around, the origin and distance of this structure is unknown. It seems to be mostly front of the associated nebula.

Technical details:

Processing work flow:
Image acquisition, MaxiDL v5.07.
Stacked and calibrated in CCDStack2.
Deconvolution with a CCDStack2 Positive Constraint, 33 iterations.
Levels, curves and color combine in PS CS3.

Optics, Tokina AT-X 300mm camera lens at f2.8
Camera, QHY9 Guiding, SXV-AO @ 6,5Hz
Image Scale, 3,5 arcseconds/pixel
Exposures H-alpha 15x1200s, binned 1x1
H-alpha 10x1200s, binned 1x1
O-III 14x1200s, binned 1x1
S-II 5x1200s, binned 2x2
