ADC_Keywords: YSOs ; Photometry, infrared ; Nebulae ; Cross identifications Keywords: circumstellar matter - infrared: ISM - infrared: stars - ISM: clouds - ISM: individual objects (NGC 7000, IC 5070, LDN 935) - stars: formation - stars: pre-main sequence Abstract: We present observations of ∼7deg2 of the North American and Pelican Nebulae region at 24, 70, and 160um with the Spitzer Space Telescope Multiband I] ing Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS). We incorporate the MIPS observations with earlier Spitzer Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) observations, as well as archival near-infrared (IR) and optical data. We use the MIPS data to identify 1286 young stellar object (YSO) candidates. IRAC data alone can identify 806 more YSO candidates, for a total of 2076 YSO candidates. Prior to the Spitzer observations, there were only ∼200 YSOs known in this region. Three subregions within the complex are highlighted as clusters: the Gulf of Mexico, the Pelican, and the Pelican's Hat. The Gulf of Mexico cluster is subject to the highest extinction (AV at least ∼30) and has the widest range of infrared colors of the three clusters, including the largest excesses and by far the most point-source detections at 70um. Just 3% of the cluster members were previously identified; we have redefined this cluster as about 10-100 times larger (in projected area) than was previously realized. Description: The MIPS observations of the NAN complex were conducted in two epochs. The first (and largest) component took place on 2006 June 10-11 and covered ∼6deg2 in the region of highest extinction (see additional discussion in Guieu et al., 2009, Cat. J/ApJ/697/787). These observations were part of Spitzer program id 20015 (PI: L. Rebull). Additional observations were obtained on 2008 June 24 as part of program 462 (PI: L. Rebull). File Summary:

Note (1): Clusters as follows: Pelican = IC 5070. See section 6.3 for further details. PelHat = Pelican's Hat. North of the Pelican's head, in roughly the same location as would be found a hat on its head, is a previously unidentified dark lane at 24um, similar to but much smaller than the Gulf of Mexico. See section 6.4 for further details. Gulf = The "Gulf of Mexico" region is the area of highest extinction in the NAN (The North American (NGC 7000) and Pelican (IC 5070) Nebulae) complex. See section 6.2 for further details. Note (2): In the spirit of Wilking et al. (2001ApJ...551..357W), we define the near- to mid-IR slope of the SED, α=dlogλFλ/dlogλ, where α>0.3 for a Class I, 0.3 to -0.3 for a flat-spectrum source, -0.3 to -1.6 for a Class II, and ←1.6 for a Class III. Note (3): For each individual criterion, a "yes" means the object met that given criterion for YSO selection, "no" means it did not, and blank means that it was unable to be assessed for that criterion. For example, column S3624 indicates whether each object was selected as a YSO candidate in the [3.6] vs. [3.6]-[24] diagram ("yes"), or it was not ("no"), or, it was missing a 3.6 or 24 micron measurement, and thus could not be assessed in the [3.6] vs. [3.6]-[24] diagram (blank). See section 4.2 for further details on each criterion.
