This is IC 1396, the Elephant’s Trunk Nebula and the surrounding area. It is located in Cepheus and is 2,400 light-years from us. I used Sulfur 2, (red/orange) and a Hydrogen Beta, (light blue) filters to bring out a bit more color this time around. Was also able to really highlight the dark clouds of dust in the area. The trunk, seen protruding from the left, is about 30 light-years long.
