Astro Imaging & Dark Sky Preserve

   NGC 7000

-The North America Nebula is large, covering an area of more than four times the size of the full moon; but its surface brightness is low, so normally it cannot be seen with the unaided eye. Binoculars and telescopes with large fields of view (approximately 3°) will show it as a foggy patch of light under sufficiently dark skies. However, using a UHC filter, which filters out some unwanted wavelengths of light, it can be seen without magnification under dark skies. Its prominent shape and especially its reddish color (from the hydrogen Hα emission line) show up only in photographs of the area.

Cygnus's Wall is a term for the "Mexico and Central America part" of the North America Nebula. The Cygnus Wall exhibits the most concentrated star formations in the nebula. The image taken above from the observatory here, is only a ssmall part of the whole NGC 7000, I will re visit the part of the sky pertaining to this, and add by Mosaic, another 4 parts to allow presenting the whole special part of the sky.
