Image Details:

This image captures the faint glow of the North American Nebula, or NGC 7000 along with the Pelican Nebula, IC 5070. Because my camera is stock meaning the filter over the sensor blocking red light is still there the nebula appears faint. Once I get that filter removed my camera will be more sensitive to the red wavelength and the nebula will come out much brighter. Still think its cool even without.
