 Another very complex region of Milkyway star clouds and emission nebulosity in a breathtaking array of wreaths and irregular shapes. I shot this one in portrait mode because there is really so much more to see in the north - south orientation than the standard landscape orientation. The nebulosities include NGC7000 to the upper left, the Pelican nebula just above center is IC5067, and IC5070. The nebulous arcs below is IC5068 and LBN328. Deneb is just off the field to the upper right, and its corrector plate ghost image can faintly be seen to the lower left.
