Cepheus is a quite dim constellation in the northern sky, despite its dimness it is full of sky treasures.

One of them is the large IC1396 nebula that contains the famous vdB 142 dark nebula best known as The Elephant Trunk Nebula.

This narrow band image was caught with a Williams Optics FLT 110 with my SBIG ST2000XM camera and a Baader H alpha filter from a heavily light pollutes sky and a very bright full Moon.
