At some point last year, when I didn’t know what to shoot with my TS65Q telescope and the ASI294MC camera, I started looking through stellarium and found this part of Cygnus with the very fine wispy clouds of hydrogen alpha and made it my target.
There’s really no name for the whole nebula so I’m going to call it the Wispy nebula 😊
Until yesterday, I completely forgot about the data so I got to work and made it into a final image. I added the star spikes with the StarSpike Pro photoshop plugin to give it a sparkling effect.
I hope you like it.
