From Australia during winter, the constellation of Cygnus lies low on the northern horizon. As the constellation encloses a rich portion of the Milky Way, Cygnus abounds with interesting objects of all kinds. This general region would be the northern hemisphere equivalent to the Vela-Carina region for southern observers, although not as rich. The region does however contain a number of bright emission nebulae, the most prominent of which are NGC 7000 the North American Nebula, and the IC 1318 emission nebula complex.
