300mm f/4 Nikkor lens at f/5 on Nikon D3200 DSLR body. EQ2 Sky-Watcher mount.


The North America and Pelican Nebulae are truly iconic This is a 23m 36s stack (in DSS) of 6s subframes exposed at 1600 and 3200 ISO (pretty much equally partitioned). Had to cease the exposure due to the encroachment of the dawn. I used some experimental processing in Photoshop CS2 to obtain the presented result.
