NGC7000, The North America Nebula

NGC 7000 in Cygnus is huge… so huge, I could only fit part of it in the field of view at 503mm focal length.  But that’s okay, since the whole thing is beautiful.

This was actually on a night that was probably miserable for millions of people who were without power due to Hurricane Irene.  But the light pollution was very low due to those power outages, and the air was clear after the storm, so at least there was some good to come of the natural disaster.
