Cygnus with crude delineation to assist with the preceeding image. Brightest star to the left of the head is Vega.

A little bit of a challenge tonight as for some reason it took a little longer than normal to get into focus, Aperture for the moon Shor kept sliding and bouncing off the "best shot" circle. But did what I could. 

Before and after editing of Scorpius overlooking my house. Shot in nightmode with some edits in both the native gallery and Adobe Lightroom. Cygnus just shot in nightmode with a minor tweak to sharpness in the native photo editor. Got a copy with a crude markoff for Cygnus as it may be hard to delineate, but once you see it, you can sorta picture a swan/goose figure. I use Stellarium to help guide me to the constellations. 

In the same image with Cygnus you can see a polygonal shape to the upper left-- that's the head of Draco, a very large constellation thst resembles a dragon. And over to the lower right of Cygnus, there is a smaller polygonal cluster-- that is Delphinus.
