“The Wall” is the nickname of the portion of the North America nebula roughly corresponding to the “Central America” region. It is a region of intense star formation, glowing in the reds and purple hues of hydrogen and oxygen.
I started imaging this from my suburban backyard as a test, but the subs had good signal so I kept on taking subs. In three nights I accumulated 12 hours’ worth of light subs, some of them unfortunately with moonlight, which once integrated and processed gave me the image I’m posting here.
Comments and critique are very welcome. All the acquisition details and high-resolution imagery are available on Astrobin at https://www.astrobin.com/3uiqg8/
