Object name: NGC7013
NGC 7013 is a rather nice spiral galaxy that is often overlooked since it hides in plain sight but in a constellation not known for galaxies -- Cygnus the Swan. It is less than 2 degrees from the southeast edge of the Veil Nebula complex in fact. This means it is rather heavily obscured and its color balance severely altered. It is much redder in my image than it really is. 60% brighter in red light than green and 60% dimmer in blue light than green light. Twice as much of its blue light is blocked than its red light giving it a rather red color. The arms are likely far bluer than they appear in my image. The extinction appears to vary quite a bit across the galaxy. At least my attempts to correct for this extinction resulted in a very uneven color effect. I could have forced the colors but decided to just go with what hit the sensor as adjusted for its known light curves. Most of the stars in the image are in front of the absorbing dust so are mostly correct.
