This image focuses on the Cygnus Wall. The Cygnus Wall is a portion of a much larger nebula called the “North America Nebula” located around 2600 light years from Earth.

The hydrogen clouds in these nebulas are lit by stars showering ionized radiation on them.

Processed in PixInsight. Imaged from my backyard.
