Pelican and North American Nebula Region

I took this image with my DSLR and a 200mm telephoto lens piggybacked on my big scope. It is a composite of 3 three minute images. It shows the Pelican Nebula region with portions of the North America Nebula visible at the top of the photo. These regions lie in part of the Milky Way, and are large clouds of gas seen as we gaze back upon our own galaxy towards the center.
