On the 12th September I was able to image the area in Cygnus including the North American Nebula (NGC 7000) and the Pelican Nebula (IC 5070) as the beginning of a larger mosaic of the region. This monochrome image is made from x18 five minute light frames at ISO 400 and f/2 and x23 temperature matched dark frames plus master flat and bias frames from my library. Stacking was done in Deep Sky Stacker and subsequent processing using StarTools. Cropping was done in Picture Window Pro. The red version of the area shows more of the billowing nature of the nebulosity in the area.

Equipment used-Skywatcher Star Adventurer mount on Celestron Alt-Az tripod, Canon 700D modified DSLR, Astronomik 12nm Ha clip in filter and Samyang 135mm f/2 lens.
