I've not been able to image due to the weather and clouds. I was looking back over some image folders and found a folder labeled NGC 7635 dated 8-18-18. I never processed an image from this data because I was not pleased with raw images. However since I had nothing else to do I decided that I would process an image from the data now. M52 a Messier Open Cluster looks pretty good in this image. NGC 7538 an emission and reflection nebula also looks decent. However as is my usual with this object NGC 7635 the Bubble Nebula leaves a lot to be desired. However I'm stubborn and I keep trying. Please enjoy my most recent image of M52, NGC 7635, and NGC 7538.
