NGC 6888 (Crescent Nebula) in Red

NGC 6888 (Crescent Nebula) - An Emission Nebula in Cygnus

This is the first of four components of an LRGB composite image.
Red filter
Total Integration Time: 91 minutes

Some star elongation which can be reduced with choice of a higher rejection ratio in DSS.
Used 50 dark frames instead of 30. This makes a significant difference in SNR in my opinion.

I'll give much more details when the final LRGB image is completed.
