Abstract: IC 5146 is both a reflection nebula and an HII region surrounding the B0 V star BD+46° 3474. The region is relatively nearby at 1.2 kpc. It has attracted considerable attention, and has been studied at optical, infrared, millimeter, and radio wavelengths. A substantial population of young low-mass stars exists in the region. IC 5146 is located at the eastern end of a more than 1 degree long cloud filament, which harbors scattered star formation, including the FU Orionis star Elias 1-12 = V1735 Cyg.
