DescriptionNGC 7380 is an open cluster discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1787. William Herschel included his sister's discovery in his catalog, and labelled it H VIII.77. It is also known as 142 in the 1959 Sharpless catalog (Sh2-142). Known as the Wizard Nebula, this object is a reasonably large nebula located in Cepheus.

DescriptionIn the Christmas eve, on the mountains with one of my friend took this photo at -6C temperature. I set up camera working on -20C. It's really a very special night in my life. First time taking astro-photo on Christmas eve and first time stayed at this place and first time stayed on -6C temperature whole night, first time taking NGC2359. It is so similar as Stitch who is in the Disney cartoon. Merry Christmas and happy new year.

DescriptionThe North America Nebula is large, covering an area of more than four times the size of the full moon; but its surface brightness is low, so normally it cannot be seen with the unaided eye. Binoculars and telescopes with large fields of view (approximately 3°) will show it as a foggy patch of light under sufficiently dark skies.
