NGC 7129 and NGC 7142

About image
NGC 7129 is an observable H II region in the Cepheus constellation; it is one of the most remote structures of the Cepheus molecular nebulous complex, of which it is part.
NGC 7142, in the upper part of the image, is an open cluster of 6,200 light-years away and probably obscuered by interstellar clouds.
I had some technical problems with my equipment shooting this image, so the RGB integration unfortunately was not optimal.
