Moon – just after full

The sky was interspersed with clouds. Once there were cirrus’s, sometimes they were cumulus clouds, but there were also windows between them to try to take a test the new equipment and photograph something. The tests were successful, but the atmosphere was waving. Moon on top.

Albireo (Beta Cygni, β Cyg)

Is a double star designated Beta Cygni (β Cygni, abbreviated Beta Cyg, β Cyg). Beta Cygni is about 415 light-years (127 pc) away from the Sun. When viewed with the naked eye, Albireo appears to be a single star. However, in a telescope it resolves into a double star consisting of β Cygni A (amber, apparent magnitude 3.1), and β Cygni B (blue-green, apparent magnitude 5.1). Separated by 35 seconds of arc,[16] the two components provide one of the best contrasting double stars in the sky due to their different colors.

Albireo (Beta Cygni, β Cyg)

Somehow I have a weakness for this pair of stars. Whenever I look at them through the telescope eyepiece, I am fascinated with their colors and that they are so close together.

I’ve collected light frames with few different sessions. Photos taken on 2019 at Zwardoń and Bieszczady during PTMA rally.

M33 / NGC 598 – Triangulum Galaxy

is a spiral galaxy 2.73 million light-years (ly) from Earth in the constellation Triangulum. It is catalogued as Messier 33 or NGC 598. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third-largest member of the Local Group of galaxies, behind the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy. It is one of the most distant permanent objects that can be viewed with the naked eye. The galaxy gets its name from the constellation Triangulum, where it can be spotted.
