Pelican Nebula – narrowband

My second ever photo in narrowband – HA-OIII-SII.

On this occasion, I decided to photograph the Pelican Nebula……I used plate solving to get into the nebula but did not realise that this meant I was right in the middle of it and hence my image below (which is based around the star HD198896) does not show much of the well known edge of the nebula – still, it is a riot of colour!

SII – Red
Ha – Green
OIII – Blue
