IC5070 - The Pelican Nebula in Cygnus

The Pelican Nebula. There was a very bright full moon when I took this and the transparency wasn't good. As Cygnus was 180 degrees away from the moon adn was therefore in darker skies I decided to try an object in Cygnus. This is one hour in Hydrogen Alpha made up of 12 x 5 minute subs.
