Over the past few night I have been going after the heart of Cygnus and the central star Gamma Cygni. There is a lot of dust and gas in this region of the sky including the Crescent Nebula.

Love this.
Have a good day and clear skies everyone. Gamma Cygni (? Cygni, abbreviated Gamma Cyg, Y Cyg), also named Sadr, is a star in the northern constellation of Cygnus, forming the intersection of an asterism of five stars called the Northern Cross.
