In 1962, Beverly T Lynds catalogued the dust cloud that separates the North American Nebula (NGC7000) from the Pelican Nebula (IC5070). These dust tendrils leak into the glowing ionised hydrogen gas that form one of the largest emission nebulas in the summer sky. This region is often captured with narrowband imaging. However, since I prefer natural looking colours, I decided to go for an LRGB image with a Ha blend into the red channel. The image below represents 18.5 hours integration and was taken with my Esprit 150
