North America nebula NGC7000 from the mini-WASP array

We have had a succession of clear Moonless nights this past week and this has allowed me to (half) commission the mini-WASP array.  I have found that one of the Sky 90 refractors is quite a way out of collimation and I am working to rectify that.  However, both scopes were sufficiently collimated to get this image of the North America and Pelican nebulae in Cygnus, so this is a 2-framer using the Starlight Xpress M26C cameras and the Sky 90 refractors.  Last night I took a single framer of the very top end of the North America nebula and I will see if I can bolt this image onto the two-framer taken (shown here) earlier this week.
