Next exit: Cygnus

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

Lifting off

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?

Night surrogates

In the night streets of Zurich, through encouraging shop lights and outdoor cafes, cold surrogates stare at the empty city, looking for human remnants.
