The North America Nebula
The constellation Cygnus is home to many large and bright emission nebulae. Perhaps the most famous is NGC 7000, the North America nebula. Even from Australia this is not a difficult object for a wide field telescope in dark skies, despite the nebula never rising more than a few degrees above the northern horizon. To the west of NGC 7000 is the fainter emission nebula, IC 5067/70, also known as the "Pelican" nebula.
The nebula is believed to be illuminated by the very hot and very bright star Deneb, even though this star is about 2 degrees away.
