The Summer Triangle, formed by the bright stars Vega, Deneb and Altair, is easily spotted by observers in the northern hemisphere. The Milky Way in Cygnus contains many interesting and striking deep-sky objects such as the North America Nebula (NGC7000), the red glow just below Deneb at left. Sum of 4 x 30 sec. unguided raw images converted in DxO Pro 9 and processed in Photoshop CS6.
