We’ve noticed some nice full-color and RGB  deep-sky images made by Jerry Macon using our

Tele Vue-NP127is telescope. They’re all taken from his private Dark Star Observatory in Taos,

New Mexico.  His image of the expansive North America Nebula (NGC 7000 – above) displays

how the deep red light of Hydrogen-α dominates this emission nebula (an  ionized cloud of

hydrogen gas about 3° across). A feature of this nebula is the “Cygnus Wall” section at the bottom,

that includes “Mexico” and “Central America.” This feature is a dense star-forming region of dust

and gas that is often imaged alone without the rest of the nebula.
