The data reveal a cluster of young stars associated with H2 line emission in each region. Additionally, many IR point sources are found in the dense core of each molecular cloud. Most of these sources exhibit infrared color excesses typical of T Tauri stars, Herbig Ae/Be stars, and protostars. Several display the characteristics of massive stars. We calculate histograms of the K'-magnitude and [H-K'] color for all sources, as well as two-color and color-magnitude diagrams. The stellar populations inside and outside the clusters are similar, suggesting that these systems are rather evolved. Shock-driven H2 emission knots are also detected, which may be related to evident subclusters in an earlier evolutionary stage. Description: NIR images of Sh2-157 and Sh2-152 were taken under photometric conditions on 1999 October 30, and 1999 November 2. We used the OASIS instrument at the 1.88m telescope in Okayama Astronomical Observatory, Japan. OASIS is a NIR camera and spectrometer equipped with a NICMOS3 array. The field of view is 4.2'x4.2'. Three broad-band filters, J, H, and K' (2.16um) are employed for the observations, as well as a narrow-band filter centered on the H2 line (2.12um) File Summary:
