A reddish diffused nebula with a span of 16 arc minutes is NGC7635, positioned about 30 arc minutes southwest from an open cluster of M52 near a border to Cepheus. The nebula itself is not so larger one but photogenic and has a striking feature of clear 3'-sized round shape in center. This shape gives a nickname of "Bubble Nebula". It's considered that a supernova explosion in the nebula has formed the characteristic structure.

Jump to Wide field image includes M52, NGC7635 & Sh2-157
