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.

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

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



Full size image here.

Default Very Impressive!

Wow Chris,
That image of the N.A. Nebula is really great!
Have you tried submitting any of your photos
to contests or magazines? They are definitely
worthy.
Thank you for sharing this image with the membership.
