This image shows the Cygnus Wall, in the southern part of the North American Nebula... NGC 7000. When Rotated 130 degrees CCW, the wall becomes The Mountains of Cygnus. Although taken primarily with narrowband filters, the image is a pretty good representation of RGB colors. However, the use of these filters greatly enhances the detail.
