Here is an image of Sh2-82 - also known as LBN 129. Close by is LBN 128 also known as Cederblad 168. I understand these objects to be related in terms of the general gas and dust region in which they reside. The diagonal dust lane is pretty well populated with cataloged Dobashi dark nebula objects.

 

Image and details can be accessed from the link below. I also have a link to the annotated image.To some, the background may seem to have a red tint to it. I left this in intentionally since it was part of the Ha data that was somewhat pervasive  low level signal outside the dark lanes.

Dan, Thanks for the comment. Yeah, this area is right on the milky way disk. There is a lot of stuff there.
