V1331 Cygni

Today some geek stuff. Some time ago I framed a sky fragment that contains several small bright and dark galactic fuzzies. Later I found out in the picture a small arc surrounding one of the stars. It turned out to be V1331 Cygni star. It is very young star that we observe at one of its poles, so we are able to see undisturbed view to this dynamic system. 
The arc nebula has been created few thousands years ago during FU Orionis outburst. Currently it is being carefully observed, as it is a place when formation of very low-mass objects may occur.

Pictured from my background, 5h total exposure with 130mm refractor and Atik383 camera.

Clear skies!
