Cygnus the swan is high overhead on late summer nights and is well placed in the fall for those of us in the northern latitudes. I runs through the mid-north summer milky way, so we see it as we look towards the plane of our galaxy. Nebulosity (clouds of hot, glowing gas) runs throughout the area, leading to many photo ops. Cygnus has many spectacular objects, including the Veil Nebula, and the Pelican and North American Nebulae. I've recently added pictures of the Butterfly Nebula and the Crescent Nebula. Check the images below to see for yourself.
