char32geek\Images\NGC 6960

This is part of an awesome area of the sky known as the Cygnus Loop, a large supernova remnant. When I first got my SkyGuider Pro mount, I wanted to see if I could image things with my cheap AstroMaster 80AZS telescope. It's a short refractor with a lot of chromatic aberration and field curvature. This actually is the first nebula I've ever properly (I use that term loosely) imaged. I will probably try to image the entire Cygnus Loop with my 85mm lens in the near future.

Revised image of the above data

After revising this image, and noticing the framing I had on this 400mm focal length scope, I was inspired to get the same field of view with my 360mm focal length wide field scope. The camera sensor is smaller, but I am also not as zoomed in, so to speak.
