shot Cygnus (Blue Mountains)

Moved the tripod to the east side of the GBO. Shot the Cygnus region with the Star Adventurer. Started 30 seconds. Stopped down the lens. Increased the time to 150 seconds. The stars looked good. Kept pushing the time. Still had pretty round stars at 5.5 minutes! Amazing.

Hints of the North American Nebula (Caldwell 20).
