IC 1318 and NGC 6888 (77mm 5DII).jpg
Gamma Cygni nebulosity aka the IC 1318 complex, plus the Crescent Nebula, NGC 6888 at right, in central Cygnus, taken on a superb night from home July 30, 2011. This is a stack of 5 x 12 minute exposures at ISO 800 with the filter-modified Canon 5D MkII and the Borg 77mm f/4.3 astrograph lens (300mm focal length), and using the IDAS V3 nebula filter. Orientation is tilted off true north at top (my usual orientation) to take in NGC 6888 and the little blue reflection nebulas at upper left.
