This image shows a region of dark nebulae in the constellation Cepheus. Noteworthy is B169 as an elliptical black ring. The northern part is particularly black and encloses a star island with small stars. In this field you will find the other dark nebulae B170 - 174. Close to the image (on the left), IC1396 would not be far away.
