NA naked eye? (Blue Mountains)

We had a pretty good sky for the Perseids. We were getting so dark adapted that everything seemed bright!

I asked if one could see the North American nebula (Caldwell 20), with the Pelican nearby, naked eye.

No one seemed to know.

But I was noticing some extremely bright concentrations of stars and nebula near Deneb, between Cygnus and Cassiopeia. The shapes were very evocative...
