These images are from a large mosaic created by using both the QHY8 CCD Camera with a Nikon 55mm f2.8 lens at f4, and a Canon 20Da (Modified) camera with a Nikon 28mm f2.8 lens at f4.

I spent my spare time one weekend working on this mosaic of the Cygnus area... Lots of gradients and imperfect fames to combine and try to match up. Quite challenging!  Aside from creating the mosaic, I used this Astronomy Image Processing Workflow.
