NGC 7129 in Cepheus


NGC 7129 is an open cluster, but longer exposures will reveal the associated reflection nebula in the center. Dark nebula LBN 497 can also be seen. A lot of star birth activity is taking place in this area. A surprise target, and one of my favorite so far, due to it's shape and lovely color variations.

Technical specs:
