Modified Canon 20Da with 200 mm lens @ f2.8. The camera was mounted piggyback on my NexStar 11 GPS. Guiding with the NS11 at f3.3 with Meade DSI/PHD Guiding. The image is an LRGB composite. The L channel is an average of 16 15-minute exposures with a Kenko R64 filter. The color channels are averaged from 24 6-minute exposures without filter. Post processing in ImagesPlus and Photoshop.
The North America Nebula (NGC7000) and Pelican Nebula (IC5067) is located near brilliant Deneb (upper right). Also note the Magic Carpet Nebula (IC5068) at the bottom of the image.
