NGC 7129 is the reflection nebula at the lower right. It contains approximately 130 young stars. Some of them have created Herbig-Haro objects. The open cluster at the upper left is NGC 7142. Both reside in the constellation of Cepheus.

Images were taken with a Takahashi TOA130 NFB using a modified Canon 650D. Ha data was added using an ST-8300 with 12nm Astronomik filter. Exposures were two hours for each. Composite images were combined and adjusted in Photoshop.
