Here are some shots I took a few nights ago of NGC 6990, Gamma Cygni, and M13. I tried to photograph these three objects a few days earlier, but my frames were fogged and unsalvageable due to the horrible combination of a full moon and a hot, humid night, so I had to re-do them.
I honestly don't know how I photographed Gamma Cygni and somehow cut the main nebula out of the frame :foreheadslap: Thankfully, there are some fainter nebulae in the frame. The exposures were 40min. for the Veil and Gamma Cygni, and 20min. for M13. I plan to enhance some of these frames by copying the original negatives onto some old Kodalith graphic arts film; I think I will be able to pull out a lot more faint data.

Great shots Noah... M13 is a favourite target of mine, and I long for the day when I can get out and start using my scopes again... :bow: :like:
