From SE Michigan, 11 Sep 2005, The Pelican Nebula, IC 5070, was the target. Almost at zenith, I got a lot of stuff in this image (e.g. NGC 7000 East Coast, Birds Nest, NGC 6996/6997), and The Pelican Nebula on the center right. Nikon D70 DSLR prime to a Vixen A80SS refractor, 400mm, f/5, IDAS LPS filter. Exposed at ISO 800, 5 x 4.4 min, 5 x 6.4 min. Processed with Nikon Capture 4.3.1 (black pt. set), ImagesPlus 2.5 (ave. combine, Adap L-R 3x3 PSF, 10 interations), Neat Image, PSP 9.01. Vixen GP-DX with Skysensor 2000 tracking, SBIG STV with e-finder autoguided.
