IC 5070 Pelican Nebula, Molecular Cloud L935, Cygnus
The Pelican Nebula, 1500-2000 LY distant from Earth, is a part of a large gas and dust region which includes NGC 7000, the N America Nebula. The region is an extensive star nursery in which new energetic stars excite and ionize Hydrogen atoms causing them to re-emit light mostly in the red Ha wavelength. The cold, dark molecular cloud L935 lies between Pelican and N America nebulas, behind the bright blue star 57 Cygni, above the pelican's beak.
The attached image was taken with the small TSAPO65Q astrograph, iEQ30 pro mount, full spectrum modified Canon T3i camera, and guided with the Orion 60mm F4 SSAG pro.
The image is a stack of 12x360sec exposures, iso 3200, with Astronomik 12nm Ha filter, and 6x360sec exposures, iso 1600, with Astronomik CLS-CCD filter, 40 darks, 40 bias, processed with DSS, XnView, Star Tools, and Neat Image..
Thank you for looking. Comments welcome.
