Sharpless 201 (IC 1871, LBN 675 and others) is an emission nebula located approximately 10,000 light-years away in Cassiopeia. This nebula is often overlooked or imaged along with the more popular Soul Nebula (IC 1848). This one is on the opposite side of my recently posted Sh2-189 (https://www.flickr.com/photos/dcrowson/48201263231).
