Sagitta Area

This milky way area includes "Barnard's E", in Aquila, as well as Sagitta, Vulpecula, and south Cygnus.  Barnard's E is on the upper left, below the bright orange star Tarazed (50 gamma Aquilae).  See a close-up of Barnard's E on my dark nebula page (scroll down).

I spent my spare time one weekend working on this mosaic of the Cygnus area... Lots of gradients and imperfect fames to combine and try to match up. Quite challenging!  Aside from creating the mosaic, I used this Astronomy Image Processing Workflow.
