Imaging Sadr and Observing the Veil

Good night on Tuesday- managed to get a good imaging session in as well as some observing. The picture is of Sadr/Gamma Cygni from 20x 300 seconds plus bias, darks and flats.

Had the dobs out whilst this was going on, first star hopping with Sam to the Hercules cluster and the Double cluster then alone after his bedtime. From the observing log:

West and East Veil- superb. Sinuous strands, beautiful. Spent a long time sweeping back and forth.
N America nebula- found Mexico but rest was a struggle.
Andromeda group. M31 dark lanes were visible in the 35mm eyepiece, first time from home.
Pleiades- first sight this year.
M33 pinwheel- v v faint. 20 minutes to find. Not worth it!!!
