Sharpless 101 is known as the Tulip Nebula. It is located in Cygnus, not far from the Crescent Nebula. I've shown both this image, and a wider field, in Cartes du Ciel to give an indication of their proximity. In this image I have mapped Ha to Red and OIII to Blue, and to a lesser extent, to Green. I also shot some Red, Green and Blue for the stars.
