E.E. Barnard meets Beverly Lynds

Another piece of Milky Way stars and dusts. There are several non-stellar objects in the picture below. Barnard 361 is main dark nebula in the frame – large blob in the left part. Other objects are identified in the second annotated photo. Small bonus is planetary nebula Sh 1-89 – Moth Nebula. This is very star rich region in Cygnus constellation between Deneb and M39 open cluster. Also very rewarding in binocular observations.
In case you do not yet know – Beverly Lynds is an author of LDN and LBN catalogs. They were¬†created much later than Barnard’s ones, and also are more detailed.
Picture shot on August, 30 under my suburban sky with 130mm refractor and Atik383 monochromatic camera. Almost 6h total exposure time.
