Scope: MN152 "Levy" Mak-Newt 150 mm at f/4.8,  Dos Picos Park, Ramona, CA   7 September 2012, Camera: ST8300M

Exposure: 16 x 10 minutes H-Alpha (1x1 bin),  8 x 4 minutes RGB Exposures (2x2 bin) 

Plus 12,000 nm IR image data from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer

Processing: Data Collection -  CCDSoft (as FITs).  Calibrated, stacked (Sigma Combine), LRGB channel registration, central gradient removal, and color equalization - Astroart.  Curves, Levels, HaRGB combine and finishing  - Photoshop. This image is a HaRGB combine with Ha channel and total RGB matched to minimize color shift.    Selective sharpening was applied to nebula features.   IR data was co-registered to the Ha data stack in Astroart and blended to red and green on the IR included images.  Final Image size is approximately 2400 x 1800.

North is up in this image. This is a hydrogen emission complex catalogued in the New General Catalog as a cluster as NGC 7380 but it is also catalogued by Sharpless in his catalog as Sh2-142.  This field  is located in the constellation of Cepheus.  This image replaces an earlier image in the archives here.  The Horizontal FOV is 88'.

Image center is located approximately - Equatorial 2000: RA: 22h 47m 00s Dec: +5806'00"
