Just came home on Wednesday 15th August to find we have Picture of the Month in this Month’s (September 2007 Issue) Astronomy Now magazine. Astronomy Now have published our wide field picture of the The North America Pelican Nebula. Taken with the Takahashi Sky 90/SXVF-M25C combination, this is only around 4 hours or so of total exposure time, which is at the lower end for my work with the little Tak as I normally use a minimum of around 8 hours for nebulae. Noel has managed to keep really good star colour as you can see, while bringing out all the faint stuff in the region of the Pelican.
