My first ever image of NGC7000 – taken with QHY10 on Sky Watcher Equinox Pro 80mm scope with TRF-2008 field flattener

Success! My first image of the North American Nebula (NGC 7000).

The following is a single test image – one sub. No dark frames or flat frames have been applied. The scopes are mounted on HEQ5 Pro mount – no guiding.

My next step will be to apply darks and flats – I took a series of darks tonight ready for this step.

The following image has been stretched and had background light pollution removed in GIMP software.
