Description

Since getting narrowband filters I've been curious what the whole sky looks like in the Hubble palette. Looking through my regular scope is like looking through a straw compared to a simple 35mm lens.

Cygnus seems to have one of the most dense regions of interesting targets. I've shot some of them close up already, but these surveys are giving me ideas for future projects as many of these little wisps are not apparent on the basic charts. Sadly that will have to wait until later in the year, as Cygnus has started to set behind the roof of my house when darkness falls.
