Pelican Nebula, start of the project

So far, not a very lucky start.
I have spend four nights with this target and the result is only five 20min. frames.
The see is open and it keeps sending clouds of mist night after a night.
Image is kind of noisy, doe too few light frames, but I'll post it here to wait more to come.
Camera QHY9, Optics Meade LX200 GPS 12" forced to @ f4.65 Guiding with SXV-AO active optics unit 11Hz Filter Baader H-alpha 7nm
Exposures 5x1200 s.

I have no objections to your photo. I actually was more drawn to it because of its black and white color, and was very impressed at the your work. I didnt even know that you were unsatisfied with it until i started reading. I cant wait to see your next shot and thanks for showing off your art.
