Description

Like the Eastern Veil Nebula (previous upload), the Cygnus Wall Complex is one of the first objects I imaged with the new 10" Lacerta Photo-Newton Edition 2021.

In three nights from September 1 to 3, I was able to collect 12.4 hours of photons with the ZWO ASI2600 MC Pro and the Optolong L-eXtreme filter. Tracking was done with MGEN-II.

Although dithered, nothing was cropped from the original resolution of the camera (26 megapixels).

The seeing was mostly good to very good. Not much more should be possible at 1000 mm focal length

Image processing was done with APP, Siril and Photoshop CC, especially with the CameraRAW tool. To stretch the Ha and OIII colors, I created a Photoshop Action.
