This narrowband image of the area around the North American nebula was taken from Huntsville, Texas by Houston astro-photographer Don Taylor. Don used a Takahashi FSQ-106 at f/3.6 and an SBIG STL-11000 CCD camera. Exposure was 100 minutes each of HA (5nm), SII and OIII, with the SII and OIII components binned 2x2.
