Emission nebula in the constellation cygnus. Does resemble the the north american continent. This is of course a coincidence.

Hubble palette image that worked well to revel great detail. Doubled oxygen and sulphur exposure times to offset the strong hygrogen compoment.

Having another go at wide field imaging this month so starting off with an easy bright object.

Rotated my camera ninety degrees to capture as much of the nebula as possible.

Data collected on three nights. 12th & 13th & 14th April 2015.

Sii/ha/oiii image with 8 hours of data. 23 x 7.5min Sii & 32 x 3.75min Ha & 25 x 7.5min Oiii 2×2 binning.
