NGC 7510 - Open Cluster
NGC 7510 is a young, open cluster in Cepheus just a couple of degrees below M 52. It is estimated to contain anything between 30 to 60 member stars, scattered across 10 to 15 light years of space and ranging from a magnitude of about 8 to 15. It is about 107 years old and although relatively unknown, its distance from Earth has been valued from anything between 7,000 to just under 17,000 light years. Putting this into some perspective, as the cluster's light reaches you, it began its lonely voyage while the Neolithic era was still in full swing, rice has probably just been domesticated and the wheel is more than likely still a promise for the future to discover.
NGC 7510 is a gorgeous cluster and to some extent resembles an arrow's head. The whole area is faintly tinted with a huge nebulous haze, a great cloud of ionized hydrogen subtly concealing a background of fainter stars trying to emerge from the quiet and solitary darkness and carve out their own brilliance in the night sky.
