Cygnus - Wide Field

Cygnus - Wide Field

This is a 30 minute exposure of Cygnus taken with a 28mm lens at f/4. The exposure was on Fujichrome 400F Provia film, shot with an Olympus OM-1. Manual guiding done with an Orion 912mm guidescope on a Meade LXD75 mount.

    I'm a fan of your work which continues to amaze all and defy the experts with a average guidescope and LXD75 mount along with a cheap film camera. Great shot Clownfish! Kenny J
