Wile inspecting a wide-field image of the constellation Cygnus I discovered several areas of nebulosity with no catalog designation. This particular nebula whose coordinates are RA/DE (2000) 20hr 28min 19.3sec/+40. 04" 41.3', to the imager resembles a 'fish-head'. This image was captured by myself, Tim Lockhart from Bowling Green KY, on the night of July 22nd 2014. The equipment used was a Canon 450Da, Celestron C9.25" SCT @ F/6.3. This image consists of 25 x 600sec. subs for a total of 4hrs, 10min.
