IC5070 Pelican Nebula

Submitted by swingin

This is 40 -3 min subs stacked in DSS with 15 dark frames. Processed with Affinity Photo. Taken with the 8" Orion Astrograph from my back yard in Gig Harbor WA. I also used a 2" Ultra High Contrast filter. I pushed my scope almost to the hard stops going past the meridan. I finished before midnight 👍 Enjoy! I used my Nikon D5200 and Backyard Nikon.

This is just a very small part inside the North American Nebula which is huge! I may try to add OIII to it if we get better weather, and I figure out how 😁

No tracking, just good polar alignment.
