This is a test for Canon's 16-35mm f/4 lens at 35mm, with my Eos450da at Iso800. Good lens :-)

On the left edge center weak Cave nebula, it spans up to the Crescent hard on the right edge, on bottom right a bow of Veil nebula, and of course contains all the precious regions in Cepheus and Cygnus in between.

At lower center see tiny Cocoon nebula lurking at the end of it's dark "snail trail".

Funny was, in processing suddenly I got new ideas how to enhance contrast, derive a strinkingly fitting star mask, and diminish color noise in the background regardless of its brightness (milky way clouds). All worked on the spot. Rare!
