I have been putting together DSS2 red and blue channel data (with a synthesised green channel courtesy of Noel Carboni’s Astronomy Actions) and got to this point before the computer started to give up with the mass of data.  This is the Tulip nebula region in Cygnus with the Northern Cross (open cluster) and “Red-Necked Emu” (open cluster) to the left.  The ultra red star near the top of the image is S-type star AA Cygni.
