I also imaged the area with a Canon T2i with an f/3.5 50mm lens using BackyardEOS 3.0.3. The result of 50x180s exposures is an image approximately 24.7 x 16.4 degrees. LBN 777 is too faint to show up. Notable objects visible include NGC 1499 (California Nebula) and M45. There are numbers dark nebula going through the center of the image.
