NGC6888 is a combination emission/reflection nebula located in Cygnus. This is my second attempt at this object and represents only a 32 minute total exposure. Some of the fainter nested nebulosity is just beginning to show. A 10mm spacer with the f/3.3FR seems to yield the fastest system short of showing visible field curvature.
