NGC7023, or the Iris Nebula, is located in the constellation of Cepheus. It is almost symmetrical in appearance and while there is a small emission component next to the bright central star, the rest of the nebula is reflective in nature. Seeing was quite good on this second night with the SXV-H9C camera. My proficiency with the native SX software was also improved, with better results focusing!
