The "North America Nebula" (NGC7000) named after it's shape. This lies around 2500 light years away from the earth, in the Milky Way, near the star "Deneb". The colour is an interstellar cloud of ionizer hydrogen. This was an image taken with a modified camera on the back of a telescope I own. A total of 1 hour 3 minutes exposure time.
