Last of The Summer Triangle

Last of The Summer Wine may have come to an end on TV but The Summer Triangle asterism will run and run. However, it’s about to leave us for its winter holidays, to be replaced for a while by our old friend Orion.

Continuing in the vein of astrophotography the easy way I took a last shot (for this year) of The Summer Triangle from the back garden , using the wide-angle TV lens on my ZWO ASI224MC camera and a roughly aligned equatorial mount.
