NGC 7380 is a young cluster of bright type O and B stars near the center of this image. The red emission nebula Sh2-142 is part a large HII region
illuminated by these stars. Interspersed dust lanes shape the contours of the nebula into a flying horse, trailing a long flowing cape.
This image combined 320 minutes of H-alpha, 130 minutes of red, 80 minutes green and 100 minutes of blue exposures, all unbinned. Total exposure time
