This nebula has many names: Swan Nebula, Checkmark Nebula, Lobster Nebula, and the Horseshoe Nebula. I will stick with the Omega Nebula. It's right around the Eagle Nebula. It is considered one of the brightest and most massive star-forming regions of our galaxy. I really look forward to imaging this in narrow band!
