Tom, if you can find the Summer Triangle you can also find the Summer Cross. Deneb is the "head" of Cygnus and the first star in the S Cross. Rest of the S Cross is the "tail" of Cygnus [Alberio] and the wings of that Swan [Cygnus] the "arms" of the S Cross. By the way, both S Triangle and S Cross are zipping across the night sky at an alarming rate!!  No, Denis, I cannot name the other stars of Cygnus!!
