The Altair region in Aquila

I managed to get some imaging done a few nights ago.  Clear sky and no Moon 🙂  Used the south dome with the Canon 5D MkII and the Canon 200mm prime lens piggy-backed on the C11.  Captured the main stars of Aquila, Altair the bright one in the middle, Tarazed above it with the associated dark nebula Barnard’s “E”, and below Altair we have Alshain.  And all this with a stunning Milky Way background.
