Cygnus Wall (SHO)

The Cygnus Wall is the area of the North America Nebula (NGC 7000) that corresponds to Mexico. The “Wall” is a denser region of gas and dust where star formation is occurring.

This is 41 hours of data which was far more that we needed for this fairly bright object but we were doing mount maintenance and we wanted to keep on the same target for comparison from night to night so we ended up with quite a bit of data. But, absolutely nobody ever complained about having too much data and I’m not going to be the first!

Thanks to the maintenance done on the rig, this data was a joy to process and I’m looking forward to more images this fall!

For all the technical details on this one, see it on astrobin.
