Milky Way in Cygnus

Recommended Posts

I like that Clive, it's a good image. There's always a lot to see in widefield images. I like the way the open clusters stand out against the surrounding stars of the Milky Way. NGC 6940 & NGC 6885 I think?

Yes, there's also open clusters NGC6811, 6819 and 6866 just about visible. I was particularly pleased to have captured the eastern and western Veil nebula together with a few others that I had previously thought only showed up Ha.
