MR G and his Nebula

Posted by Paul A Brierley at 17:50 on 2010 Oct 12

I have an old copy of Skymap Pro 5 on my laptop, and unfortunately it doesn't show PV Cep when I Search for this star.Does anybody know where I can find the RA and DEC of PV Cep, and the associated nebula? Or is there a star that is known which will aid me in finding PV Cep in SMP? I use GOTO and use SMP when outside imaging.
