      Description

      I couldn't just leave the bright clear nights around the summer solstice up here in northern Germany unused. So I decided to slew to the Pelican Nebula for the first time. I also wanted to test my new Baader filters. In particular the OIII 4nm. The midsummer project is a small success for me because I didn't expect this result under such a bright sky.
      Unfortunately, I had to crop the picture because I had to unscrew the camera after two nights and after that my SII data was no longer aligned.

      Hope you like it to...  any criticism and comments are welcome.

      Clear Skies and stay well!
