North American Nebula

One tiny part of a massive nebula – known as the North American nebula, Mexico region (due to its shape) or sometimes called “The Wall”. It is in the constellation Cygnus (The Swan) and is more or less overhead from the UK during the late evening at this time of year – unfortunately it is too faint to be seen with the naked eye.  It would take about 6-8 images of this sized view to cover the whole thing:

2h 15 mins in 5 min subs, 36 flats, 25 darks and 32 bias.  ED120 APO with reducer, modded 1000D, ISO 800, guided.

Picture saved with settings embedded.
