Description

Widefield mosaic of the Gamma Cygni nebula stretched to the Veil nebula. The Gamma Cygni nebula was shot over three nights and reused from a different project. The Veil nebula and the region in between were shot over two different nights with about 5 hours exposure each.

H-a modded Canon 600D, Skyguider Pro guided with PHD2, Rokinon 135mm f/2 at f/2.8 with front-mounted Optolong l-enhance filter. 300-second light frames at ISO 800.

Calibrated/stacked and mosaic created in APP, final tweaks in GIMP.
