Description

NGC7000 was one of the first deep sky objects I ever captured as a teen from my back garden on good old hypered scotch chrome 400 with its extended red sensitivity. Back then I could have never imagined being able to take an image such as this. With the North American Nebular now rising low in the east I had to have a quick go and when the first HA sub appeared on screen all I could see was a huge dragon head.

Less intense than the original but probably more realistic for LRGB. Needs more exposure.
