This image shows the Sadr region of Cygnus (the Gamma Cygni nebulosity).  This is a 2,000 second sub-exposure taken using one M26C camera (the other is on its way back to Starlight Xpress today for repair).  No proper drift alignment done yet, so there is a lot of Polar rotation in the image, not to mention hot pixels and dust bunnies – but it is FIRST LIGHT for one of the biggest personal projects I’ve ever undertaken – so a real milestone for me personally 🙂
