Nebulosity in Cygnus

Astrophotography by Philipp Salzgeber

While imaging Mars with our Club´s 10″ LX200, I piggybacked the Nikon on my 130mm Vixen Newtonian and took this shot of the Constellation Cygnus.

From the North America Nebula (NGC 7000) in the upper left, the Pelican Nebula, the nebulosity around gamma Cygni down to the Veil nebula, a Supernova remnant in the lower left lots of glowing nebulosity is visible along the milky way running through Cygnus.
