On this page I collect my observations of the galactic emission nebula NGC 7000, called North America Nebula, in the constellation Cygnus/Swan.

 

Introduction

The galactic emission nebula NGC 7000, called North America Nebula, in the constellation Cygnus/Swan is, according to Stoyan, a "faint field of dull glimmering nebulae in the rich fields of the Milky Way." Best conditions are necessary for an observation, and therefore this did not work for me in the summer of 2016. In the fall of 2019, I had, at least, a hunch...

Size: 1.3° (Stoyan)
Distance: 2,000 light years (Stoyan)
Rating: *** (Stoyan)
