Some Nebulae Sadr (Cygnus) IC1318

Some Nebulae Sadr (Cygnus) IC1318

On November 6, 2010 my wife, Margarita, joint me for an observing session at Kent Park by Tiffin, IA. I used the Canon 300D piggy back on the Meade 2120 (mounted on an equatorial motor drive mount) with a Minolta MC Rokkor 135mm/f2.8 lens. 13 exposures, ISO 800, 30s, stacked using the program Nebulosity v2.3.0. The bright star in the center of the image is Sadr, the center star of the Northern Cross (Cygnus). The Sadr region, or IC 1318, is the diffuse emission nebula surrounding Sadr or Gamma Cygni. The Sadr region is one of the surrounding nebulous regions; others include the Butterfly Nebula and the Crescent Nebula. It contains many dark nebulae in addition to the emission diffuse nebulae.
