NGC7000 and IC5070: North America and the Pelican, 10 hour exposure
Close to the star Deneb in the Swan constellation, lies a huge nebula
complex more than 5 moon wide.
The "Swan wall" (bottom left) is an active star forming region.
Observers often see a pelican (right) and the map of America (left). You could as well imagine a monster (no political insinuation!)
This is a false colour picture taken with 3 narrow band filters. It requires very long exposure.
C11 with Hyperstar (F/D 1.9) on a G11 mount. QHY8L camera.
Total exposure: 10 hours and 10 minutes performed during the last 3 nights.
61 subs of 600s: 22 in Ha, 19 in OIII, 22 in SII
