Similarly, try photographing the regions in Cygnus around the North America Nebula (NGC 7000), particularly beneath the "Gulf of Mexico" and the neighboring Pelican Nebula (IC 5070).
Cygnus is littered with bright nebulae, but to combine bright and dark there is no need to look beyond the North America Nebula, NGC 7000. This is such a large-field object that probably binoculars do it best justice under a dark sky, and it is a popular target for wide-field astro-imagers.
The North America Nebula (NGC 7000) is a region of ionized hydrogen in the constellation Cygnus.
Although the 115 did a nice job on medium-sized deep-sky targets, it was with the big objects that it really shone, With a 35-mm wide-field eyepiece in the focuser, I had stunning views of the huge North America Nebula (NGC 7000) and both bright sections of the Veil Nebula.
For example, an image of NGC 7000, the North America Nebula, showed some star clusters within this extended nebula.

This time we return to Cygnus, but to bright rather than dark nebulae, and to one object in particular, the emission nebula NGC 7000, commonly known as the North America Nebula.
For someone with a small telescope that offers a very wide field of view, one of the finest sights in Cygnus is the North America Nebula (NGC 7000).
