    Arrow Rich star fields of Constellation Cygnus.



    Shot from recent dark location.
    4 x 1 mins exposures stacked manually in photoshop
    ISO 1600
    F1.4 50mm lens
    Weather was about -5, very frosty, time around 03.30 utc.
    Wanted to get the star field which looked beautiful in a dark location.
    Hope to get more images in the stacks as I progress.
    Converted in to B&W using silverpro.
    Bright star in the middle I think is Deneb and the bright star on the right is Vega...I think

    Nice picture, Declan!

    Bright star in the middle I think is Deneb and the bright star on the right is Vega...I think
    You're right about Vega and Deneb.
    There are so many stars so it's difficult to recognize the stars in the picture
    It's like a puzzle. I played a bit and draw the constellation lines on your picture. I hope it helps.

    Beautiful wide-field, Declan!

    Seeing it reminds me that warmer weather is coming to our latitudes And hope that clouds will go away with the cold!
    Clear skies,
