NGC 7000 - "The North America". Sometimes it happens that you find forgotten shots and when you look at the result you remain speechless.
This is the case. I had completely forgotten that I had made some shots at ngc7000 this summer, I recovered them and united but unluckly I only had the HA channel.
Fortunately my friend Alberto came to the rescue lending me the same subject done in RGB, so we merged the two shots together ... and here's the result!
