Over the past few nights I have been going after The North America Nebula.
I love this, lots of colours everywhere in this area of the sky.

Have a good day and clear skies everyone.

The North America Nebula (NGC 7000 or Caldwell 20) is an emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus, close to Deneb (the tail of the swan and its brightest star). The remarkable shape of the nebula resembles that of the continent of North America, complete with a prominent Gulf of Mexico. It is sometimes incorrectly called the "North American Nebula"
