I got a chance to shoot some pics of NGC7000 (North American Nebula) last night...The sky was really gorgeous until about 1.30am when the moon rose and spoiled any more deep sky work.

As you can see, I didn't get the framing of the shot right...and cut off the bottom of the nebula. Never mind, next time!
