North America Nebula (NGC7000)

This was a first experiment using the IDAS NB1 triple line pass filter (Hα,Hβ,OIII). This shot was taken 1 day before the full moon. Light clouds and increasing city light pollutiion decreased image contrast towards the end of the shooting session, but all frames were included in this stack.

The camera used was a Hutech-modified Canon RP full-frame mirror-less camera.
