20th of April 2019 - Different taste of Cygnus - author Piotr Grzędzielski

The summer comes quickly and with it, the repository of the Milky Way's objects with the constellation Cygnus in the main role. There, an amateur astrophotographer will always find something for himself. And although the typical objects are the Nebula America, Veil or Crescent, it is also worth looking for new flavors - even such as shows Piotr Grzędzielewski in his last year's picture showing NGC 6914 nebula with two objects from the Van den Berga catalog VdV 131 and VdB 132. Sometimes it is difficult to reconcile that such views were created by nature and not by an inspired futurist painter. Optic CFF 140 f / 4.9; camera: Atik ONE 9.0 ; mount: AZ-EQ6.
