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 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...
