I've imaged the North American and Pelican nebula's using a CCD (QSI 683) and a 200mm Canon L series lens @ f/4 (f/2.8 lens). I'm really enjoying shooting this wide with a camera lens on a CCD camera. I'm also really enjoying narrow band from my backyard outside Orlando Florida!

The North American and Pelican here can be seen more clearly as being represented by "holes" in a dusty region, rather than being "clumps" of glowing material. This is a Hubble Palette image, 4 hours each OIII, Ha, and SII with 3nm Astrodon filters for a total of 12 hours. The bluish gas is in a region behind the dust and you can see several areas where the gas is glowing "through" the dark dust. I've monkeyed with the palette a bit to bring out the details and show the contrasting regions.
