Thank you for supporting this wiki project
The Pelican Nebula, also known as IC 5070, is a large hydrogen emission nebula in Cygnus constellation near to North America Nebula, that is even bigger and brighter. As seen in this picture, it is plenty of dark filaments which give it a high contrast look and feel.

@Emily yeah I think you both have good points. The prleobm is there will always be things interfering or people who don't finish on time--that's fine, but I can't really set a schedule around each individual who wants to participate lives. I also understand Anna Karenina was intense this time of year, but it was also the most agreed upon when I wrote the first post; I went with popular opinion. But without people adding their voice to the discussion even saying--I only got partway, or I never had a chance to finish, or I couldn't start this week--there is no discussion. I can continue to write book club posts if people want that--and to lead discussion with prompts, but to me it seems as if it isn't wanted when no one responds. I want a book club, but I also want to create content on the blog that engages people--no one seemed very engaged the last couple of weeks of book club so why beat a dead horse, eh?

Hi Bobbo,No problem at all. Now, I'm not an eprext on all these settings (I'm just trying things, to find out what works). But I don't think the F number matters, if you are shooting in manual mode at prime focus (ie with the scope acting as the camera lens). So far, I have set only the exposure time, white balance and iso.Best of luckKevin
