Cygnus showing off!

Paul's picture of Cynus shows up very well indeed. He is not sure of any of the details of this picture except that it was taken in Wales. In the very centre NGC 7000 is clearly visible as a redish asterism resembling north america. About 3cm to the upper right is Deneb the "tail" star of the swan!
