Pelican Nebula pulling back for a wider view

Continuing in the theme of Pelican Nebula, I present this much wider view of the area. This time photographed with a VSD refactor, AG14 newt. SX 814 and Chroma filters.

 

 

The Pelican Nebula is an H II region associated with the North America Nebula in the constellation Cygnus. The gaseous contortions of this emission nebula bear a resemblance to a pelican, giving rise to its name. Wikipedia

Distance to Earth: 1,800 light years

Magnitude: 8

Coordinates: RA 20h 50m 48s | Dec +44° 21′ 0″

Constellation: Cygnus

 

This back yard image was mainly photographed in Valencia with a VSD refractor. RGB HA.
