IC 5070 Pelican Nebula, Cygnus.

Recommended Posts

Quick image of NGC5070 Pelican Nebula and some of the surrounding nebulosity. Stars a wee bit 'eggy' on this one- but just pleased to be imaging again at the moment!

IC 5070 taken with GSO 8" F4 Newtonian telescope working at F2.9 using a 0.7x ASA Keller coma corrector/reducer, modifed Canon 40D full spectrum camera @ ISO1000. Stack of five images totaling 900s of exposure from a dark sky site in Mid Wales.

Great work! I was after this target yesterday with my RC6 in Ha at 1096mm FL, managed to get 1h25mins worth. Just a side point; the pelican nebula's catalogue name IC 5070, not NGC 5070. :)

I like it.

Looking at your pic it has struck me for the first time how much dust there is in the area - at least I presume it is dust - when comparing the density of background stars on the left hand edge of the pic with the density of stars in the rest of the image. Obvious, I know.  I may not be the fastest at working out the implications of what I am looking at, but I get there eventually!

Another beauty.... great to see another 40D user and some stunning 40D captured images.
