The Pelican Nebula in Hubble Palette (HST).

The Pelican Nebula is part of a large emissions Nebula in the Constellation of Cygnus. The Nebula is part of the North American/Cygnus wall area, but is defined by a large dust cloud, situated between the Nebula and our view point from earth which appears to separate the Nebula.

This is my first image of the season and first using a new mount, which took a little getting used too. This image is a composite of Ha, Oiii & Sii combined in the HST (Hubble Space Telescope) palette.
Sii (Red) = 16x 600s subs
Ha (Green) = 20x 600s subs
Oiii (Blue) = 19x 600s subs.
