It's the first time I've ever imaged this quite pretty region in Cygnus.
One thing I did find hard about the processing was trying to draw out the nebulosity without over doing it on the star field. Tricky.
52 minutes @ ISO 800 using 3 minute subs (I think)
Canon 20d and the Canon Nifty 50 lens.
I had to crop out a little field rotation and coma.

Nice shot, Jeanette:D
That's a pretty wide field there!!:D
Was that piggybacked or on the EQ5 (or another mount) by itself??

Dido on the quote, c'mon jjj don't keep us hanging till later today. Were up imaging and want to know now!!! The suspence is killing me! I'm not being sarcastic by the way. I follow your every move with tremendous anticipation. No i'm not stalking you. ;)
Is that Canon modified, I don't think it is.... by memory. That is very very impressive. If you can't tell I love widefield, so so much... I have not such a good scope and no adapter, so widefield is my life at the moment. :thumbsup:

Very nice widefield JJJ - I think you've done very well with the processing.

The 20d was riding on top of the eq5.
