Longer nights are coming in and it's move on from water drops and bubbles and back to some deep-sky work.
Here is a Noel Carboni process of SAO 49477 data (U Cygni - Carbon star in Cygnus) with north to the right. Hyperstar III with M26C one shot colour CCD. Nearly 3-hours with 10-minute subs.

Hi Greg,

An interesting choice of subject. 8)

I'm guessing that the nebulosity is an outlier of the gamma Cygnus complex. Or is it something else?

Bob.

P.S. Dew on the front window of the cooled CCD stopped play last night. :( That's the risk of leaving the 'scope out under its cover when it rains as the grass just soaks up the moisture and then pumps it back up under said cover. I was aiming for Tycho 2398:1339 with a view to grabbing both the Flaming Star nebula and IC 410/NGC 1893 in the same FoV but sadly that's not quite possible for me, with both objects being slightly clipped by the frame so at least I learnt something even if I didn't capture any usable data! :roll:

Hi Bob,

It's something else (looks like it could even be a supernova remnant). I found it on "Guide 9.0 - Project Pluto" a planetarium program, but can't remember the designation.
