SH2-132. It is a very faint emission type nebula on the Cepheus/Lacerta border. It lies at a degree southeast of Epsilon Cep, and has a size of about 40 arc minutes. It’s easy to locate because of its proximity to the distinctive triangle of stars formed by delta, epsilon and zeta Cephei (delta Cep is the prototypical Cepheid variable). NGC7380. It is a bright and diffuse nebula associated with an open cluster.
