1 Pelican 2022 08 04

I had a chance to target IC5070, The Pelican Nebula for the first time last night.
No clouds but high humidity and temperatures created a slight haze here near the ocean.
Still, I’m pleased with the capture!
Still getting the feel of the new camera but it’s getting much better with practice.
I've added a starless version to better see the nebulosity.
