The Cygnus region is always popular, due to the rich target fields presented to imagers.
While there is a host of targets, it is also satisfying to step back a bit ... in a manner of speaking ... and go for a wider field of view.
These data were collected using a 135mm f2 camera lens, on a ZWO cooled camera, with a Ha filter. Approx. 60 minutes of integration.
Imaged at the E.C. Carr Astronomical Observatory, atop one of the Blue Mountains, in Ontario, Canada. The E.C. Carr is owned an operated by the Toronto Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, the country's foremost society of amateur and hobby astronomers.
