An interesting region in Cepheus with NGC 7822 and the wider interst of the whole SH 171 region. I took these frames in october, and hoped to add some more data, but a clear moonless night eluded me. Particularly good contrast in the fainter regions shows that deep hydrogen alpha work still needs moon free skies. Region referred to as NGC 7822, SH 171, LBN 583 and LBN 589. We even score a couple of open clusters with NGC 7762 and Berk 59. Maybe more data next year!
