The Sadr region is a large diffuse emission nebula region surrounding Sadr, a very bright star in the Cygnus constellation. This is a very large nebulous region. My field of view shown here is perhaps 1% of the total region, so imagine an entire wall of these colorful "clouds".

This was my "filler" target. Basically, I imaged this for an hour or so over 7 nights while I was waiting for my main target to become visible. The nice thing about building an automated imaging system is that you literally "program" the targeting, so capturing short periods of several targets is just as easy as capturing a long period of a single target.
