Description

I like to think of this as the Red Schnauzer nebula, but, of course, it's an upside down North America Nebula. ~21 hours of exposure, HaRGB taken from my backyard/Ladera during the evenings of 10/26/2019 - 11/2/2019. Split the night between this and the California Nebula. Initial processing in PixInsight, used Photoshop Ha layer to brighten the R channel.
