A Starless Hubble Cygnus Wall

The Cygnus Wall is a portion of the North American Nebula (NGC 7000) in the constellation Cygnus. The nebula is approximately 1,500 light years from Earth and spans about 20 light years. The Wall exhibits the most concentrated star formations in the nebula.

With S2, Ha and O3 filters I created a false color image according the so-called ‘Hubble Palette’. For removing the stars from this picture I used the Starnet PI module, released by Nikita Misiura, and it works wonders!
