The North American nebula is another popular target in the Cygnus area of the night sky. Right next to it is the Pelican nebula, which I was completely unaware of until Kelby pointed it out to me. I framed this to get the rich star field to the left of the nebula. My white balance and f-stop were not ideally set, giving me this weird color and stars-o-plenty. Whoops! I've since made adjustments and taken a couple test exposures of this target with much better results.
