About this image

My DSLR was mounted on a Star Adventurer tracking mount for this shot. I also used a 50mm lens, the so-called 'nifty fifty'.

This is very nice. You can clearly see the carbon star T Lyrae in an isosceles (well not quite) triangle with epsilon Lyrae and Vega. The flare of Vega is well controlled too.
