The Coathanger

The Coathanger asterism captured with an 80-210 mm Tamron telephoto lens set at 210 mm f/5.6, an ASI 533MC cooled astronomy camera, a UV-IR filter, with an ASI 174MM guide camera on a 30 mm f/4 guide scope. This is a very prominent asterism located between Altair and Vega, near the bright stars of Sagitta. The Coathanger is visible even in binoculars and probably the very first deep-sky object I have seen through a telescope.
