IC 5070 – The Pelican Nebula
The Pelican Nebula is an H II region (emission nebula) in the constellation Cygnus. Cataloged as IC 5070, this nebula lies right next to the North America Nebula. The Pelican Nebula contains an active mix of star formation and evolving gas clouds.
Only 30 minutes per channel, I will increase it when weather conditions allow.
