Description

Hello from Austria!

Before the winter constellations conquer the night sky, I dared to visit the constellation Cygnus.

After three months there was finally a clear night again, I packed up all my equipment and drove to the Nockberge (Carinthia/Austria).
The photo location is at around 2000 meters above sea level and has a Bortle 2 sky. I was able to collect three hours of excellent image data there (good seeing).

I created the Ha -data at home in the garden as part of a filter test with my Fornax Lightrack II.

In the end, a beautiful picture was created that I would like to show you here.

I hope you like it and feedback is welcome.

Warning to pixel peepers: Unfortunately I had a tilt in the image train and so the stars in the lower half of the image are a bit distorted ;)

Thx to @Niko Geisriegler for your help and feedback!

CS Gernot
