There are many open clusters in this 2°x2° field of view, a few of which I had trouble identifying. The prominent twin open clusters near the center of this image are NGC 7790 and NGC 7788. Below and to the left of NGC 7790 is the faint open cluster Berk 58. At the top right is open cluster King 12. Near the bottom right the small nebula Sh 2-168.
