This image is LHaRGB, where Ha was used in combination with Luminance and Ha:R (80:20) was used for the Red channel. I imaged this less common area to cover some of the dark nebula areas south of NGC 7000. I have already imaged 3 other panels adjacent to this image (CLICK any here to see: above - aka, NGC 7000, above right - aka, Pelican Nebula, and right - aka IC 5068). I used the H-alpha data collected here to create a 4-panel mosaic in H-alpha only (and will feature that separately).
