Deneb, The North American Nebula & the Cygnus Star Clouds

The Monsoon is starting to wind down and the skies are starting to clear again at night.Here is an image deep within the Milky Way in the constellation of Cygnus the Swan. The red nebulosity at top center of the image is NGC 7000 or the North American Nebula. It is named that because its shape looks very much like the North American continent. The bright star to its right is the 1st magnitude star Deneb. Canon 20D - 44 minutes, 70mm @ f/4, ISO 800
