Cederblad 214 is a large emission nebula in Cepheus and near the border of Constellations Cassiopeia and Cepheus.  It is part of a complex that also includes a fainter, arch-like nebulous expanse known as NGC7822 (outside of this FOV).   This image was taken using a Takahashi FSQ106ED air-spaced refractor at F/3.65 and a QSI583wsg CCD camera.  It is a total of nine hours of exposure using narrowband Ha, Olll, and Sll filters.   The image uses a modified HST Palette applying a process outlined by Bob Franke.
