North American and Pelican Nebulas
in Hydrogen-alpha
This CCD image was taken with a Nikkor 180mm f/2.8 (operating at f/4), the Mandel Wide Field Imaging Adapter, SBIG ST10E camera and a CFW8 with a H-alpha filter.  It is the combination of fourteen, 5-minute exposures.  The images were processed using MaxIm DL and Photoshop.

The image was taken from Hidden Valley Observatory, on my property in Soquel, overlooking the Monterey Bay in California.
