NGC 7380 (The Wizard Nebula)

Sometimes it’s fun to work with bad data because you’re not expecting much and it turns out OK.

The Wizard seems to be my arch-nemesis so far. This is the second time I’ve tried this target with little luck. I had issues with flats and I was able to crop in and salvage some of the data.

I will be trying this again later this month. The third time is the charm.

This is NGC 7360 The Wizard Nebula. This is a star cluster/emission nebula in Cepheus.
