LDN 704 in Aquila

Hello everyone!

Every summer I try to catch one of the numerous dark nebulae in the area of the constellation Auqila. I am simply fascinated by these “black holes” in the sky.
This year I chose LDN 704 and exposed it for 15 hours. In addition to the main object, there are also small open star clusters and a few nebulae in the wide field.
I took the picture in July 2021 in my remote observatory near ROSA, 1x with the 250 mm Lacerta Newton and 1x with the TAK Epsilon 130ED.
Controlled via Voyager Array, runs perfectly!

Very nice Markus! Those starry fields suddenly broken by dark clouds are incredibly beautiful. :+1:


Simple wonderful Markus … congratulations ! Color and management of dark nebula are simple perfect to me.

Thanks for sharing and for using Voyager Array.
