This complex region
is dominated by the extremely faint nebula IC1396 around the
open cluster Trumpler 37 in Cepheus. Dark nebula abound in this
field, which has north to the left. The Large dark nebula on
the right edge of the nebula is Barnard 160, and just above it
is the snake shaped dark nebula Barnard 365.
This is the first time
I have stacked five schmidt frames. Each image is a 56Mb 16bit
scan, and stacking five of them was quite time consuming you
might say. Almost all processing for this image was done in PixInsight.
