Description

This widefield image covers the southern part of the constellation Cepheus featuring the large ionized gas region IC 1396, which contains the Elephant Trunk Nebula, as well as the Sh2-132 (also known as the Lion Nebula), an emission nebula on the Cepheus/Lacerta border.

Many dark nebulae are also visible in this image. Barnard 171 and 174 are the most prominent; at the center-top part of the image. Dark nebulae consists of interstellar matter (gas and dust) which absorbs the light of stars behind them.
