1. You see the “W” turned 90 deg CCW almost center, in the Milky Way? That’s Cassiopeia. From the top star in the turned W, count down to the third segment, and then follow the line made by that segment on below the W a little more than the length of the segment itself. That’s it! (And wow that’s hard to describe, but hope you follow me.)

        It’s only slightly brighter than the rest of the Milky Way, but really pretty, particularly in binoculars. See if you can get a more close-up version. I’m still experimenting with techniques for this, and just shot it tonight. Will share, but not sure yet what I got!
