The Heart of Cygnus


 
Borg 125EDF2.8 @ f/3.3, Kodak E200 (+3), 4 x 20 min. mosaic

This panorama through the heart of Cygnus spans approximately 20°. It is a mosaic of four 6x9 medium format frames taken on Kodak E200. For those who are children of the digital age, that's Ektachrome slide film. At left is the North America nebula with bright blue star Deneb on the left and dimmer γ Cygni left of center.

Use your mouse to zoom and pan to see details in the image. If you zoom into the Pelican nebula (right of the North America nebula), you'll see that a meteor was caught in the shot.
