The North American and Pelican Nebulae
The North America Nebula (NGC 7000) and Pelican Nebula (IC 5070) in the constellation Cygnus comprise a vast region of ionized hydrogen. Light obscured by interstellar dust leads to the observed shape of each nebula. The North America Nebula was discovered by William Herschel in 1786. This wide-field image was taken with a Takahashi FSQ106ED with reducer at f/3.6 and a Canon 60Da DSLR at ISO 800 on an Astro-Physics 1200 mount; 5 hrs 45 min total exposure taken on 13 Aug and 15, 17 Sept 2015 (23 x 15 min lights; 12 darks; 128 flats; 128 bias); Sky X and Maxim DL software; processed with PixInsight 1.8.4.1170 using a synthetic light for deconvolution.
