NGC 7822 and Cederblad 214 in Cepheus

NGC 7822 and Cederblad 214 are a star­form­ing region in the con­stel­la­tion of Ceph­eus some 3000 lightyears away. In the cen­ter, very hot and power­full stars are cre­at­ing pil­lar-like struc­tures. Open cluster Berkley 59 is a very young star cluster.

In the upper left corner, two old open star clusters are vis­ible. King 11 is just out­side of the Ha region, while NGC 7762 is to its right.

NGC 7822 cov­ers the left side of the image, as well known as SH2-171. Vari­ous bright and dark neb­u­las are part of this region. The small, blu­ish neb­ula to the lower right of the image is vdB 2.

The images cov­ers about 3.5°x3.5° and is a com­bin­a­tion of RGB and Ha nar­row­band data. North is left in the image.
