Here we have a wide field look from Cassiopeia across in Cephus.
Far too many objects to list, something for most interests in there though, nebulae include the Bubble, Claw, Wizard and Cave. M52 and NGC 7419 feature as nice open cluster and the largest known protostar NGC 7538S (still my most favorite object from a research perspective).
In fact along with the extended star fields of the Milky Way (which made pulling the local details through quite difficult) and the dark rift area almost to much to look at.
The wide field shot was taken on a DSW's Rokinon 135mm with additional supporting data from the FSQ rig on the Cave (L), Bubble and Claw area (Ha) and Wizard (Ha).
Technically should be rotated 90 degrees counter clockwise but liked it better this way ;)
