IC 5070, L935, NGC 7000, Cygnus, Tsapo65q

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. It derives its name from a resemblance to a pelican, although to my eye it looks much like a rabbit running toward the north. 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 image was taken with the small TSAPO65Q astrograph, iEQ30pro mount, full spectrum modified Canon T3i camera, and guided with the Orion 60mm F4 SSAG pro.

It is a stack of 16x360sec exposures, iso 1600, with the Astronomik 12nm Ha filter, and 7x360sec 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. C&C welcome.
