SH2-202, Pazmino’s Cluster

Located in the constellation Camelopardalis, the open star grouping named Pazmino’s Cluster is contained in the very large diffuse nebula of Sharpless SH2-202. The nebula does very well in the HA filter. It was a nice surprise to find a light blue reflection area in the center of the cluster.
