NGC 7538 & 7635 (7-12-2019)-1j.jpg

 

While imaging NGC 7635 you often see the open cluster M52 to the northeast, but on one occasion I also noticed a beautiful red emission nebula off to the northwest; NGC 7538. I revisited this area to image both NGC 7635 (lower left) and 7538 (upper right) in the same field. There’s also a faint patch of H-alpha emission to the lower right.
