Description
This is my Gamma Cyg project, a two panel mosaic. Integration: 32 hours over thee weeks The Sadr region, or IC 1318, is the diffuse emission nebula surrounding Sadr or Gamma Cygni. Sadr lies in the center of Cygnus's cross. The Sadr region is one of the surrounding nebulous regions; others include the Butterfly Nebula and the Crescent Nebula. It contains many dark nebulae in addition to the emission diffuse nebulae. Sadr itself has approximately a magnitude of 2.2. The nebulous regions around the region are also fairly bright.

About moonrocks

Having had a background in the arts and worked professionally as a cinematographer and lighting cameraman, astrophotography made for a natural change in focus. I had always wanted to turn my camera to the skies. A move away from London to Valencia, Spain presented me with the perfect opportunity to do just that. The art work you see on this site was produced using basic equipment from a modest home observatory.
