Cygnus Wall 4-pane mosaic in Ha

Taken over 2 nights: 10-11/08/2022. The old CCD still does a great job of Ha imaging.

NGC 7142 and NGC 7129

Strong Moonlight interfering but an unexpected clear night so all good. Nice sharp open cluster and 7129 is a HOYS object I image a lot.

Below is a less processed image showing the Moon gradients. By processing them out you definitely lose details.

NGC 7538 Tri-band

Looking for more obscure objects again. This is a young star forming region, contains masers too. Very close to the Bubble Nebula but just across the constellation boundary in Cepheus. In the Perseus arm of the Milky Way.
