Carole, absolutly fasinating image - I spent quite a while working out where in Cygnus this area is - and discovered it at the 'tail ' of the Butterfly - never seen this imaged  independantly before -  now I know what to look for I can see it on SADR widefield I took a couple of years ago.


Also - dual rig, wow,thats neat, a consequence of your recent additional telescope purchase I assume.  makes the most of the short imaging sessions we get at the moment between clouds.

@Astrobdlbug Yes l dud the sane research as you on this target which l discovered on Astrobin. Also found l had imaged it as part if my Cygnus Mosaic. 

I have used a dual rig for some time my recent new scope was simply to replace my WO scope which l have now sold.  There were a number of features that l wanted in the new scope which didn’t exist with the WO scope.
