The Wispy Walls of Cygnus captured with the CDK14 at f/4.7.

The combination of aperture, fast focal ratio, very narrow bandpass and the very low noise QHY600M meant a decent amount of data could be captured despite not having astronomically dark skies with Bortle 6 light pollution.

The image was down sampled to reduce the image size showing the “big picture”.

A high resolution version of the central region will be posted shortly.
