NGC 7000, The North American Nebula
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 shape of the nebula resembles that of the continent of North America, complete with a prominent Gulf of Mexico.
I had previously attempted to image this back in 2020, but with a borrowed telescope as I awaited the delivery of a Skywatcher Esprit 100. The major differences (other than processing skills!) are the smaller field of view with a Newtonian telescope and the use of narrowband filters).
Due to the sheer size of the entire nebulous region, this target works well with a wide field system
