One last shot from September

North American Nebula
37 x 120 @ ISO1600 f/5 400 mm

The North American Nebula is a huge patch of emission nebula clouded by dark dust in the constellation of Cygnus. It was one target I'd failed at photographing properly when first starting out a few months ago, so I figured it was time to give it another try.

My second attempt came out much nicer, and with a 400mm focal length I could actually fit the whole thing into the field of view. The results ended up being pretty fantastic considering the Camera's IR/UV cut filter is still in place, and the exposure time was just barely over 1 hour.

It's certainly got me adding more Ha nebulas to my lists of things to photograph now.
