Description

This is a widefield view of northern Cygnus including emission regions NGC7000 (North America), IC5070 (Pelican) and IC5068. I really enjoy the contrasting dark clouds against the emission nebulosity and blazing foreground stars, led by Deneb to the lower right. Such a rich but balanced region!

Being unfamiliar with this region, I can imagine a bird of prey soaring above the nebulosity ... possibly searching for wormholes!
