Objects in the tail of Cygnus
I've captured the field of the almost whole parts of swan soaked in the summer's Milky Way around the zenith by using of a medium ranged telephoto lens. You can identify three popular emission nebulae in this picture, the North American Nebula(NGC7000) in upper left hand side, IC1318 surrounding gamma Cygni around center, and the Veil Nebula(NGC6992-5) at left hand side, respectively.
These attractive red clouds in the Milky Way are emitting by neighbored stars.
