The Cirrus Nebula, also known as Veil Nebula, is a supernova remnant which consists of several objects.
"Pickering's Triangular Wisp" is located between the eastern and western parts of the Veil nebula.
NGC 6974 and NGC 6979 are luminous knots in the upper left.

The colors are mapped to real colors:

light-red = H-alpha
dark-red = SII
cyan = OIII
