North American and Pelican Nebulae

Huge Nebula Mosaic

Well - I managed two hours of data (2min subs), this time of the Pelican Nebula, to add to my NGC 7000 from the other night. The idea being to try and make a mosaic of this area. The Pelican seems considerably fainter than NGC7000 but it seems to have come out OK.
SW EQ80 PRO, Reducer, SW LP Filter, Unmodded Canon 1000D, HEQ5/EQMOD/ASCOM guided with finder/QHY5. Processed in DSS, PS CS5 with Noel's actions. Merged with Canon Photostitch (as MS ICE wouldn't do it and I don't know how to merge in PS yet!!)

I'm reasonably pleased ith the outcome as these are my first attempts at Nebulae and a mosaic.
