NGC 6946

Although the hour was getting late, after visiting "The Tulip", I decided to try for NGC 6976 on the border of Cepheus and Cygnus. This is known as The Fireworks galaxy. Unfortunately its fairly high elevation unbalanced the mount which was reflected by the guiding performing poorly. This is quite a nice subject and definitely worth a more serious attempt. Details: 8x 7 minute exposures @ iso800 with CLS in DSS & CS2.
