This faint nebula and a sparse star cluster are located about 420' NNE of a Cephei (see finder chart below).

The above image was taken on August 12, 2001 from Harrowsmith, Ontario with Cookbook 245 LDC CCD camera and Celestron Ultima 8 f6.3 telescope (autoguided with Cookbook 211 LDC camera on a piggybacked 500mm f8 telephoto lens). It is composed of multiple white exposures (10 x 120 sec.) and single cyan, magenta and yellow-filtered images (120 sec. each) combined with AIP4WIN. Color image was then re-processed in Lab color space using Corel PhotoPaint 8.
