SADR is the central star of the Cross of Cygnus.   It is supposed to be a swan but looks much more like a cross and the constellation is often called The Northern Cross.  The whole area abounds in nebulosity that is very easy to capture with a camera.

This image, taken with a  Samyang 135mm lens reveals a field of view of about 8 x 6 degrees.  It is was made from 12 x 3 minutes in each of RGB and also a luminance of 24 x 3 minute Hydrogen Alpha 3nm data.  CAmeras is Moravian Instruments G2-8300 loaded with 31mm Astrodon LRGBHa3nm filters.

I hope you like it!
