Description

Wednesday night was new telescope night and the weather didn't disappoint. I decided to shoot the North America Nebula with my new RedCat 51. This is my first refractor and my first wide field scope so it is also my first large emission nebula I've shot. I'm really rather happy with the results. This is a first pass stacked with out dark's because I didn't have any 1x1 bin 300 seconds dark's at the time.
