Cygnus located in our home galaxy, the Milky Way.
Here you can see my Gamma Cyg nebula project in its larger context. The surrounding area is home to an abundance of deep-sky objects, with many open clusters, nebulae of various types and supernova remnants. Some open clusters can be difficult to make out from a rich background of stars. In the centre you can see a two panel mosaic which includes the Butterfly Nebula.
An Earth-like planet … system that is 1,400 light years from our own, is located in the Constellation Cygnus
