73.5 hours, taken over the course of 19 nights from Nashville, TN (Bortle 8). This image is a wide swath of nebulosity in the center of the constellation Cygnus, including the Crescent Nebula, the Tulip Nebula, Wolf-Rayet 134, Cygnus X-1 Black Hole, and much more. I hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed taking it!
