Taken at Kelling Heath Star party. Also includes the Crescent Nebula.

Bonus feature:

Can you see a nebula that looks like a Hammer and sickle?

These images are very impressive. Yes, two thirds of the way to the border travelling left of centre. It doesn't seem to be marked in my S&T Pocket Sky Atlas, being very roughly the same separation from Sadr as the Crescent Nebula, but in an easterly direction. I'll go and look in Aladin now!

LBN 079.99+00.01 -- HII (ionized) region ? About 30 arcmin across.

Thanks for the kind comment. You found it! at 9 o'clock from Sadr, I love these little 'discoveries' I found a poodle in Auriga last year - although it takes a little more imagination!
