A remarkable image of the Cygnus region of the Milky Way, showing a great deal of faint nebulosity. At the top left are the North America nebula and just to its right, the Pelican nebula. To their right is the brightest star in the image, Deneb. The nebulosity at center is the Gamma Cygni complex. Just below and to the right of that is the tiny "bubble" of the Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888). In the lower left corner, the faint wisps belong to the Veil Nebula. See legend for details.
