Notes: There's quite a bit of nebulosity in the area of the star Sadr (aka Gamma Cygni) on the lower right. The North American Nebula is prominent in the lower area right of center. Deneb is the bright star to the upper right of the N. A. Neb. To the left of center you can see IC 1396, an large, circular, reddish area that looks a bit like a flower. This object is described as a "cluster plus nebulosity." Click the links below for more NA Nebula images.
