Canon 1000D, Tamron 55-200 zoom lens, Astronomik CLS clip filter, HEQ5 pro mount. Deep Sky stacker, Photoshop & Registar software.

Wide-field image of the Cygnus region with some some Ha data (from other images acquired over the last couple of years) added to enhance the North America, Pelican, Crescent, Sadr, Veil, Propeller and NGC6914 parts of the image. It was enjoyable to use a more low tech approach than usual in just pointing the camera and lens in the right direction and setting it off unguided. Processing was challenging as getting the Ha data to blend in and add detail to the image took time.
