The brighter portions of this huge nebula in Cepheus are visible through a telescope under dark skies, but it takes a long exposure photograph to capture all the fine detail and faint extents seen here.  Many dark globules of dust permeate this region, notably the Elephant’s Trunk seen protruding in from the left.  The very bright star near the bottom right is Herschell’s Garnet Star, also called mu Cephii.
This is a mosaic of 4 frames (2x2) taken over several days from Mazama, WA and Redmond, WA.
