NGC 6997

Combination of 13, 1 minute exposures, SBIG ST-9XE CCD.
16" f/10 schmidt-cassegrain with an f/6.3 focal reducer.

NGC 6996 and NGC 6997 are a pair of overlapping clusters situated within NGC 7000, the North America nebula. I imaged them one night while using the 10" telescope as a guidescope while I obtained some images of NGC 7000 using a 300mm telephoto lens.
