This is NGC7000 also known as the North American Nebula - it looks like a map of North America. The North America Nebula is large, covering an area of more than four times the size of the full moon; but its surface brightness is low, so normally it cannot be seen with the unaided eye. It is about 1,600 light years from earth. This is a compilation of 214 x 120 second exposures. This was taken with a D5300, 70-200 VR and TCE 14E.
