The Dark Nebulae of NGC7000

For an incomplete project I’ve been working on, I matched up Barnard’s Atlas of Selected Regions of the Milky Way with my own widefield image of the NGC7000 area.  In case you’ve ever wondered about the designations of the dark nebulae around the North America Nebula, here they are!

I find it odd that he didn’t catalog the “Gulf of Mexico,” but when you look at his plates, what we now call the Pelican Nebula isn’t as bright, so the Gulf doesn’t look as distinct.  It was subsequently picked up in Lynd’s catalog as LDN 935.
