Cygnus widefield

My first foray into SLR Photography with an unmodified EOS 450D. This is a widefield shot of Cygnus the Swan. North is (approximately) at 1 o'clock and the three bright stars across the top of the image are the Swans wings (Gamma Cyg top center).

5 x 300s + 1 x 200s (no in camera noise reduction applied)
