After my success with Barnard’s Star (See Below), I decided to have a pop at 61 Cygni.
This is the only naked eye star, (or should I say Stars, as it’s a double) with a large proper motion.
This property was first discovered in 1804 by Giuseppi Piazzi, calling it his “Flying Star”.
The CCD image below was taken with an 8″ Newtonian.
I will back up this image in a year or two to see how much these two stars have shifted.
