Time for the usual stuff, despite the Moon, which happened to be quite low in the sky. I aimed my camera at the Summer Triangle and took multiple shots using my DSLR and intervalometer. My settings were my usual 18mm focal length, ISO 6400 and 6 seconds exposure.
As a by-product of the meteor search (again, as usual), I stacked 30 frames from each set of 40, although the south west (lower right) parts of the images were most affected by moonlight, so I cropped them out.
For the third set of frames, Vega and some other stars in Lyra had rotated off the view but the minor constellations of Vulpecula and Sagitta had joined the party. The fuzzy patch is the Coathanger asterism.

Thanks, Phillip! :)

It reminds me I need to go out and check out the glob in sagitta.  I had a special view of it in the past with an f/8 114mm reflector and I want to look at it again with several different f/8 scopes.
