Cluster and Dust
Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day brings us an image of NGC 7129 and NGC 7142, a reflection (or dusty) nebula and an open cluster in the area of the constellation of Cepheus. Open clusters can vary from tight to very dispersed, even looking like a swarm of bees in some cases. There are wonders to hunt in the sky, even with a modest telescope by an "amateur" astronomer.
