Imaging star cluster NGC6883

NGC6883 is a star cluster in constellation Cygnus. It was discovered by John Herschel in 1828. For this image a total exposure time of 2h20m was necessary. I like the huge amount of stars in this relatively small area of the sky.

The image is also available in full resolution.
