Cygnus

Cygnus, showing numerous stars and areas of nebulosity such as the North America and Pelican nebulae on the left. The streak is a pesky satellite.

 

D7000 + 50mm lens,10s at f2, ISO2000. No tracking. My Astrotrac is buried in the garage among household stuff while the house itself gets an overhaul. To be honest, it was put away in June when the weather was so persistently foul that astronomy seemed a distant dream.
