NGC 7419

While searching around for nebulous targets I came across this attractive tight cluster of mainly red stars in Cepheus. It is NGC 7419 and contains the highest number of type Herbig Be stars known in any galactic cluster. The image would have benefited from some deeper subs as this attempt doesn't quite reveal the fainter members of the group. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 10x 5 minute exposures @ iso800 with CLS in DSS, CS2 & XAT.
