IC 5070

On this page I collect my observations of the galactic emission nebula IC 5070 (Pelican Nebula) in the constellation Cepheus.

 

Introduction

The galactic emission nebula IC 5070 (Pelican Nebula) in the constellation Cepheus is, according to Stoyan, a faint nebular region, which is more difficult to observe than the North America Nebula NGC 7000. In my experience it is rather the other way round in the eVscope. The best results so far, I got, however, with the Vespera (with post-processing).

Size: 60' x 50' / 40' x 30' (Wikipedia/Stoyan)
