This is a prime focus image of the Winter Albireo, the colorful binary star h3945 (Herschel 3945) located in Canis Major. It was accomplished with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel DSLR camera and the 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain at the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg's Naylor Observatory near Lewisberry, Pennsylvania.
