NGC 7000 and IC 5070 in Cygnus

The North America Nebula - NGC 7000 and IC 5070 in Cygnus - Astrophotography Martin Rusterholz

The North Amer­ica (NGC 7000, left) and Pel­ic­an Neb­u­lae (IC 5070, right) count among the greatest neb­u­lae in sum­mer sky. The vis­ible clouds appear as two dis­tinct objects sep­ar­ated by a thick dust lane.

The image is cre­ated from nar­row­band images select­ing SII, Ha and OIII spec­tral lines map­ping to red, green and blue know as Hubble Palette. The field cov­ers about 3.5° x 3.5°. The light strike to the right is the reflec­tion of Deneb (alpha Cygni) just out­side of the field of view. North is up in this image.
