As winter approaches we say "good bye" to the summer and autumnal constellations.
Yesterday evening I thought that I'd try capturing some of the Milky Way going through Cygnus and, using a simply digital camera (Canon G9X) on a tripod, took this image. While not the best photo ever taken and quite 'noisy', it does show the Milky Way passing through Cygnus along with the dark dust clouds, such as the Coal Sack. To the left of Deneb the North America Nebula (NGC 7000) is also just visible. Though I have taken 'star shots' before, this is my first attempt at a more detailed astro image.
