Starless NGC 7000 Narrowband

June 12, 2023

The Cygnus Wall in NGC 7000 (Caldwell 20), the North America Nebula in the constellation Cygnus. These clouds of molecular hydrogen and oxygen are about 2600 lightyears away from us, and to provide some scale, this frame is about a hundred lightyears from one side to the other, or about 600 trillion miles or 950 trillion kilometers. Notes: stars removed with StarNet2 to highlight the softer wisps of dark nebulae scattered in front of the bright emission nebula beyond.
