I love to chase this pair with my IIE.  Finally with a good, fast, 200mm telephoto lens (Carl Zeiss 200mm/f2), I snagged the pair in a single frame with help from a 12nm H-alpha filter.

 

Here's my latest attempt on a chilly, windy, Aug night at Mount Pinos:

You missed out the nebulosity in the pacific and in "North" South America.... Great to lie on the ground looking straight up at it! Great shot, got any of the gamma cygni region?!

Here's a still of the Gamma Cygni region shot on the same night with the same lens (Zeiss ApoSonnar 200mm/f2):

The gear can even take a real-time video of the Gamma Cygni nebula cloud:

Nice photos!  Last week we had low humidity and clear skies for several nights...and very little moon. So unusual but it gave me the opportunity to use my IIE and an 80mm APO even though my neighborhood has a lot of LP. Fall is my favorite time of year. The weather is calming, the late Summer stuff is still up and the early Winter gems are available if one is willing to stay up late enough.
