An imaginary trip bringing us to the constellation of Cygnus, one of the most interesting corner in the milky way. Cygnus was shot on the sky above Zurich with an astonishing 8 minute long exposure on Skyguider Pro. Camera D600, lens Nikon 70-200 mm
On the launch ramp located direction to the Gotthard Pass.
A last look to the Mythen peaks
Into the launch tunnel
Its heart: a permanent supernova surrounded by its nebula. It’s tail on the bottom left, close to the pinky north America nebula. Its head far away on the bottom right. Can you see the Cygnus left wing stretching to the top and its right wing (partial) pointing to the bottom?
