Description

Above is the culmination of seven hours under the Milwaukee Astronomical Society Observatory's semi (not really) dark skies. The image was taken with an Astronomik H-Alpha 12nm EOS clip filter, a full-spectrum Canon EOS Rebel T3i, a Canon EF 50mm f1.8, a full-package SkyGuider Pro, and, of course, a plethora of accessories. This image is a slightly "better" version of an image I took (link below) of the Cygnus region back in May 2021.
