One of my favourite captures this summer in Cyprus, from one of the most perfect astronomy nights ever.

The Cygnus Loop Supernova Remnant in Hydrogen and Oxygen.

Capture was a livestack of only six, three minute frames under near-perfect atmospheric conditions.

Remastered last night in Photoshop.

Very nice, Minos! You've got a great FOV with your scope and camera. I am just able to fit the Eastern Veil in my frame.

Very impressive Minos especially with such a short capture time.

That's very cool, especially if it is from your 'floodlit' front porch!

cheers,

Thank you Robin!

This was shot in my dark backyard from back home in Cyprus, not on my floodlit front porch in Long Island, NY!
