A wide-field shot of of the North America Nebula and the Pelican Nebula areas which merge nicely into the arm of the Milky Way. I have allowed the stars to show through here to show just how busy it is up there rather than trying to suppress. Wide-field data taken on the Rokinon and added just a little Ha from RH200/16803 in some areas to provide a little more clarity in nebula areas.
