I was not tracking well, so I figured I'd just see what happened if I took a gazillion short images and stacked them. The focal length actually frames North America + Pelican rather nicely. Cropped for this entry.

Camera - Canon 60da
Lens - Canon 200mm f2.8 L
Settings - ISO 6400, f4
Filter - Hutech IDAS LPS P2 72mm
Mount - AstroTrac
Frames: 261 x 15 seconds, no darks
Software: DeepSkyStacker, Photoshop CS4



Good Luck to all our entrants!
Charlie

Thank You Charlie...


Target for October Widefield = Heart and Soul (can be mosaic, but must be wide enough to include both IC1848 and IC1805)
