Description

Same night as my previous picture of Aurigae, this is Cepheus as seen from my little backyard surrounded by high houses and roof : my little corner of the sky.

I started with this one : 126 min total exposure in LRGBHaOiii, as there are many interesting emissive nebulae in the surroundings or Cepheus.

I think I will try a very long exposure when the weathers allows it : 5 hours of L should allow me to capture some IFN or molecular clouds. Getting a small "ghost" or the Iris Nebula in miniature should give a sense of scale of this constellation !
