NGC 7000 (North America Nebula)

NGC 7000
NGC 7000

Famous emission nebula in Cygnus. The form gives it its name. It is about 2600 light years away.

After a long period with really nasty weather finally a clear sky, but with an almost full moon hanging deep in the south. Nevertheless I gave it a try. And it was worth it.
