Cygnus Region with the North America Nebula and Sadr
I keep coming back to this region for a number of reasons. I keep struggling with getting the right exposure especially of the Ha areas. In addition being a busy area of the Milky Way the starfield tends to be overwhelming. So a couple nights ago I tried under a moonless night. With Cygnus directly overhead early in the morning the position was optimal. I'm fairly happy with the result but as always we have a new shopping list of what we would do next time :-).
