IC1318 is a large diffuse emission nebula surrounding the bright star Sadr at
the center of Cygnus cross.
The following image shows a very small portion (37' x 25') of the nebula around
Sadr. Sh2-104 is the small pink area at the bottom left from Sadr.
Below is a wide field view of the nebula (approx 6° x 4°, 12 times the full
moon). The bright star Sadr is in the middle.
