A second try at imaging the North America Nebula - NGC 7000 with my Canon 300mm f4 lens on an iOptron ZEQ25 mount. This time, I used a stack of nine 240-second exposures at 1600 ISO with a Median blend mode. The final step was to add sharpening to the image using the High Pass filter in Photoshop on a Black & White layer and then blend using Soft Light.
