Cygnus: Sadr region

When looking at Cygnus while waiting for the Veil to reach the gap beside our house, I realised I could have a go at other nearby northern targets. Sadr is another 10 degrees north (+40) and I might even be able to get the North American nebula at +43 (over two or three nights).

This is just 3x9 minutes and will be revisited.
ISO 400, 61edph, nikon d5600, L-Enhance filter

I suspect the filter is helping a lot since I'm aiming low over a street and neighbors houses with sensor lights and car headlights shining regularly through the exposures.

Great effort for something so near the horizon. Those LP filters really help in situations like you encountered. It's surprising how much you can get out of objects that low, must have been good transparency as well. Nice work.

Thanks Michael. I'm thrilled to be able to collect some northern objects that I hadn't considered before. I've learned about a new constellation too since I usually ignore the northern sky.

It's hard to keep up with all the great images you are producing Tony. I have seen them all and really wonderful.

Great image Tony especially from low in the north.
I too give the north a miss but you have proved they can be done and with images like this its well worth the effort.

Sadr appears below the eave of our house while the Veil appears at the guttering, so I have to wait longer for it.
Looking on Astrobin I see that the Crescent is just out of my frame above so that's a target for the TS115.
There's also the North America and Pelican nebulae nearby so it's a rich area - it's like discovering hidden treasure.

Funny thing is I'm growing trees in that direction to block out light.

Lovely image & a great result for 55mins Tony, the little Sharpstar was obviously the keeper then?
Cheers,
Tony

Thanks Tony, I'm happy to have this and the Veil under my belt before they disappear again. It's supposed to be clear again tonight so I may try to get something else from Cygnus. I can only squeeze about 35 minutes in between the house and trees.

I couldn't decide between the Sharpstar and Redcat, so I sold the one that a forum friend picked. Both are good scopes.
