    Here i have a combined data set from my local RH 200 and DSW FSQ.

    I have merged the substantial set of c120 frames to produce a version of the Cygnus Wall that i am pleased with.
    Not small details like the tadpole type structures (there small but they are there) in the blue areas just above the wall to the right. A number of extra 'features' can be seen with this extended data set - have a look around :)
    I think that will conclude my looks at the North America area for a few years :)
    Rev B - Just toned down the 2 big red stars. Think they should be read but Barry Wilson suggested they may look out of place and in retrospect I agree.
    Hope you enjoy.
