Slighly over processed. In this image the main nebula at the bottom is IC5134. Inside the nebula is open cluster NGC7129. IC5133 and IC5134 are also visible around the two stars directly above the main nebula.The nebula around the star to the left is not in any catalogue I could locate.

Skymap appears to be missing several stars in this area - especially inside the main nebula.


Location: Curdridge, Southampton, UK. 51N 15W.
Details of equipment and method.
