Description

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.

20 more exposures per channel with good data, a fatal optical de-collimation is detected that will proceed to eliminate. Ha 20x300seg Gain 140 offset 40 OIII 20x300seg Gain 140 offset 40 SII 20X300seg Gain 140 offset 40 I am experienced with the offset parameter of my new camera and I do not know what it serves, lessons are accepted. Gracias a todos.

C

Third version of the Pelican nebula, in this occasion and made new shots reducing the gain to only 50 and increasing the time of each image to 600 seconds. the result is noticeably better... I'm still experimenting.

D

Fourth and final version of the Pelican Nebula, combining 180-second and 140 gain images with 600-second and 50 gain images. Without too much apparent improvement. Final data. Ha- 600x24 (gain 50) Ha- 180x30 (gain 140) OIII- 600x24 (gain 50) OIII- 180x34 (gain 140) SII- 600x24 (gain 50) Ha- 180x36 (gain 140)
