IC1318 accounts for the nebula surrounding Sadr, the third brightest star of the Cygnus constellation (thereby gamma Cygni). This nebula is an emission nebula, in addition to having many dark nebulae. It is impossible to observe directly via simple and ordinary telescopes and merely appears in photos. Despite the fact that Sadr and the nebula look near each other, the nebula has a distance of three as further as Sadr. The photo is the result of 40 minutes exposure time.
