The hen's beak

Somewhere around 430 light years away in constellation of Cygnus there is an Albireo star. When you look at it with binoculars or larger instrument you will easily split it to two beautiful stars: one gold-orange and one blueish. It is a beautiful view and it is worth to find it out. 
This is the last light of my ATM newtonian - telescope found the new owner, and I found the new telescope. This time it will be a refractor. More news about it will come soon :)

Picture below is 3 minutes total exposure with RGB filters.
