The sky around the Saturn Nebula

This image from the Digitized Sky Survey 2 shows the sky around the bright planetary nebula NGC 7009, often called the Saturn Nebula on account of its curious shape. The nebula appears as a bright blue disc at the centre of the picture and many faint galaxies can also be seen in this picture.
