It's been a while since I looked at a narrowband image, so this was fun.
The ridge of IC 5067 inside the Pelican, IC 5070, shows some excellent structures including the famous columns with Herbig-Haro 555 and its jets - most likely from an embedded protostar, all topped off with some nice dust features.
Hope you enjoy.
