This is not what I intended on imaging last night. This seems to happen a lot lately. I was going to try and image the Cat's Paw Nebula. However it was not high enough in the sky when I went outside. It was still below the tree line. I decided to image something else while waiting for the Cat's Paw to rise above the tree line. I looked around and noticed Cygnus was in a good location. The area in and around Sadr is one of my favorite parts of the sky and I enjoy imaging it. So I chose it as my target. As it turned out I didn't get to image the Cat's Paw because clouds moved in and covered the sky. And with all of that said please enjoy my most recent image of Sadr and Vicinity.
