NGC 7000 and the 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 the narrowband and RGB data I have created 2 different renditions: an RGB mapping, resulting in a more natural look, and the Hubble palette, which is a false color representation of the same object.
