Imaging the emission nebula NGC6914 in constellation Cygnus from Böblingen / Germany

Behind the unspectacular name NGC6914 a nice emission nebula in constellation Cygnus is hidden. To me the nebula looks a little like a dark monster with two deep blue eyes 😀 The picture is also available in full resolution here.
