Description

The aim of this new project is to capture the whole Cygnus constellation in H-Alpha using a Canon 200mm f2,8 L II lens and a Sharpstar 100Q for higher details regions (Veil complex, Crescent, etc.).

It will be a long way...

I'm adding a new version of the image for every tile added to the mosaic, leaving in comments exposure details.
Let's start with Sadr panel (8x1800s) and Crescent Nebula panel (9x1800s).
Unfortunately, I'm not ready yet to plate solve, so you will see strange overlapping.

Thanks for watching

Edit 2 Oct: last summer had the worst weather I can remember for a summer! Since the end of July we had just 12 nights without clouds (one with a misty full moon). I have to resize the project to “North America to η Cyg” and it still being difficult to complete. Actually I need about 10 more nights to fill the black parts. Fingers crossed🤞🏻
