North America and Pelican nebulae, 3 aug 2018

I decided to devote the night to shooting hydrogen nebulae. The choice was between North America with the Pelican, the Veil nebula and the NGC 6888. While aiming at the lens, I immediately tatted at a familiar arrow from the stars – which means we will shoot North America. However, even with the guidance of the stars turned out to be drawn. I reconfigured the polar axis, slightly rebalanced the equipment – it seemed to go well. Of 130 frames, only 3 or 4 turned out to be defective, the rest – clearly 🙂 In total, I spent about an hour with the equipment. The result pleased.
