Notes

IC 5068 is a relatively faint emission nebula situated near the bright star Deneb and its more photographed neighbors, The North American and Pelican Nebulae. As seen in the above image, IC 5068 is the designation for the bright patch in the center of the frame. The nebulae to the right and left of IC 5068 are LBN 329 and LBN 332 respectively, they being separated from IC 5068 by near vertical streaks of dark obsuring dust.
