N America and Pelican Nebulae in the Summer Milky Way


This is a first light using a QHY 163M camera with a Canon 200mm L series lens - total exposure 5h56m through a Baader hydrogen alpha filter. Gain 200, offset 104. Taken 7th/8th Aug 2018 from Cassagnabère-Tournas, Haute-Garonne, France. Picture shows the North America nebula (NGC7000) and the Pelican nebula (IC5070) and surrounds in the light of hydrogen alpha - a gas that pervades and fuelled the development of all the stars we see that makes up the band of light we call the Milky Way.
