I'm in the process of building a list of stars to begin practicing photometry and with Cygnus nicely placed I thought I'd look up the YSO's that I had viewed visually there. I came across V1331, and thought I'd do a little research, checked on the LCG and noticed the V obs have the star becoming brighter, emerging from the surrounding dust cloud I thought..

Anyway, I thought I'd share this HST image of V1331 I came across, excuse me if this is 'old news' but I think it is a stunning image:)

I like looking at this star.

I like looking at this star. Even purely visually it looks fuzzy. And have you tried V1992 (I think - this is from memory) nearby?

Just remembered - it's V1982

Just remembered - it's V1982 Cyg, not 1992! But what's 10 variables between friends?

Added to the list

Thanks Mike.

I would have struggled with V1982 visually so it never made it to my observing sheet.

It's on my list now.

You've caught my interest here. Shall be checking out V's 1331 and 1982 – if ever our terrible weather lets up! Meanwhile the Digital Sky Survey overlay on the VSP makes an interesting tool of exploration. At the smallest scale of 30', the dust rings in this locality become perfectly obvious. Thus, I add another object to our list: NSV 25447; at 21h 0.3m 3.3s. +50° 13' 12”.8.

 

As for the dark nebula: Lynds 980; this is a “Wow” feature on the Mt Lemnos image. Quite spooky. I've a mind to label this, “The Spider Nebula”

V's 1331 and 1982.

Picked up on both these yesterday evening. Sheer luck plus impertinence! No dust rings seen, of course. Estimates in WebObs for anyone interested.
