This is NGC 7023, aka the Iris Nebula, in the constellation of Cepheus. This is my first auto-dithered image, using an adaptation of GADFly, originally written by TG Tan. The transparency was pretty lousy the night this was shot, and removing the background gradient was quite a challenge. A higher-resolution image is also available. North is up.
