NGC6888 - The Crescent Nebula in Cygnus
The Crescent Nebula. There was a very bright full moon when I took this and the transparency wasn't good. As Cygnus was 180 degrees away from the moon adn was therefore in darker skies I decided to try an object in Cygnus. This is a HaRGB image made up of 30:15:15:15 minutes in 5 minute subs.
