Shot this Sunday night.  It's a huge area so I used the Canon T5 on the iOptron mount with the lens set at 200mm.  It's a stack of 110 shots at 60 seconds each at ISO 3200.  The North America Nebula is easy to make out but the Pelican Nebula on the east coast is a little harder to visualize.


I could have piggy backed the camera onto the LX90 and got just as good results but the iOptron mount is a lot lighter on the back. ;)  Hopefully by next spring I can get that observatory built!
