North is to the left in this photo. The area shown is about 5° x 3.3°.

The two red patches below γ Cygni, the bright central star, are, from the left, IC1318B and IC1318C. Another part of the nebula can be seen at the top left edge of the photo: IC1318A. To the left (N) of γ Cygni is the star cluster NGC6910 and further away is another cluster, Collinder 421. On the other side (S) of γ Cygni the most obvious star cluster is M29.
