North America & Pelican Nebulae from Joppa

The North America (NGC7000) and Penguin Nebulae (IC5070) high in the late-summer sky from Joppa, Texas, taken 2021-09-05 06:30 UT. The summer of 2021 has had the 3rd highest number of rainy days in the recorded history of central Texas. Last Saturday was not one! I've shot both of these individually and am now pleased to have them in one image. A partial short in my power cable made things exciting for a while. I continue to be pleased with these one shot color narrow band images.

WO RedCat 250/51mm telescope, Optolong L-eNhance NB Filter, ZWO ASI533 MC Pro cooled camera at -5C, SW AZ-EQ5 Pro mount, ZWO ASIAIR controller. About 2 hours of exposure with 42 3min images stacked . Processed in a HOO palate in PixInsight, Topaz DeNoise AI, and Photoshop.
