Pelican Nebula

Pelican Nebula

Close to the North American nebula is the Pelican (IC 5070 and IC 5067). It is also formed of glowing Hydrogen gas and is somewhat of a challenge to image. I was helped by good tracking which allowed long exposures and a fairly dark sky.
2014-09-28 at the Victoria Centre Observatory.
Conditions were clear with very slight reduction in transmission from high thin overcast. Temp 15 Deg C and no wind.
Canon 6D (modified) on TV 127mm and Paramount ME mount. Guiding via 80mm refractor and PhD software.
Exposures - 4 light frames and 3 darks at ISO 100 for 16 min each with 8 flats for calibration.
Processing in Images Plus and Photoshop.
