Nebula of North-America (NGC70009


Nebula of North-America (NGC70009

A mosaic of the North-America nebula (NGC7000), made from three overlapping images.
The main part (left) is made of FITS gathered all over 2020. I hand-picked the best ones of each session to get about 3h30 of exposure. The two panels on the right have been collected last week, each one about 2 hours. The individual FITS are 10-second long.

The data were collected with a Stellina (Vaonis), from my balcony in Bortle-5 conditions.
FITS stacked in DSS (+ darks for each temperature)
