Order Notes

Right next to the North American Nebula (and included in my photo of No. Am. Neb.) is the Pelican Nebula. It is also a hydrogen region and also contains some thick dust, creating dark areas where the light is blocked. Not everyone sees the pelican shape, but it’s clear to me and I’ve rotated this image (relative to the No. Am. Neb. image) to make it upright.

The image was captured at Wa-chur-ed Observatory in July of 2011 using narrowband filters.

Scope: AT111EDT at f/5.6
Mount: Orion Atlas/EQMOD
Camera: QSI583ws at –15C
Exposure: 10 x 900s H-a, 10 x 480s O-3 (3 hrs 50 mins total)


About Greg Marshall

I am a retired electronics engineer and after a few months of enjoying my leisure I began to miss doing product development. My astronomy hobby always needed new solutions to unique problems, so I decided that whenever I came up with a good solution I would try to make it available to others.
