The field spans from Cephus to Cassiopeia with north to the right, West to the bottom, and East to the top of the frame. The bright nebulosity pattern on the upper right is Sh2 171. The cluster of nebulosity in the center of the field is the Bubble Nebula. The yellow/orange star at the bottom of the frame is Zeta Cephei.
