Pelican Nebula – IC5070

Can you see the pelican? This is Pelican Nebula IC5070 in a tri-color narrowband composite. As with all narrowband composites, these are false colors and the color scheme is largely a matter of taste. Here I use a somewhat conservative and not overly colorful scheme. I am still not completely happy with the post-processing.

This is my first full image using data from the Deep Sky West Remote Observatory. There is much more to come…
