Default NGC7000 - North American Nebula

Here's a Ha shot of the August Object of the Month. I took it in my backyard. This illustrates that even for those stuck in the most urban skies, you can still produce great shots using a narrowband filter.

- 6x10-minute sub exposures
- 60 minutes total exposure

Equipment Used
- Tele Vue NP-127is
- Starlight Xpress SVXF-M25C
- Paramount ME
- Astronomik 6nm Ha Filter
