Admiring the Universe - a fine-art photographer based in Perthshire, Scotland, with interests in landscape, nature and astrophotography


An unusual kind of scene for me - a fairly wide-angle view of the vast dust lanes running through the Milky Way around Cygnus.

The scene is centred on NGC7000 the North America Nebula with bright star Deneb just below to the right. Further down a small sprite-like pattern of pink nebulosity is the Sadr region. Toward the left edge of the frame, a small arc is the Cygnus Loop (mostly the Eastern Veil nebula).

78 lights @ 25s each using an old Pentax 50mm f/1.7 @f/2.8 on the Sony A7r3 (ISO 640), plus bias + dark + flat frames.
