Widefield view of Sadr

Submitted by jimwcoleman

Here are some wide-field views of my favorite star, Sadr. Located in the constellation of Cygnus, Sadr is high overhead in the late evening this time of year. Deep in the heart of the Milky Way, Sadr is surrounded to all sides by nebulosity. Significant nebulae like the North American and Pelican Nebula are in the region. Photos were taken with an AstroTech AT72ED refractor, using a Canon 60D at prime focus, 13x2 min subs, ISO 1600.
