This nebular region can be found right at the Cepheus/Cassiopeia border. The easiest way to locate it would be to extend a line up from the center star (gamma cass) in the "W" shape of Cassiopeia until you hit the Cepheus border.

Though these nebulae are, in no way, small, they are difficult targets to detect visually. Apertures around 20 inches and dark skies are required, though many viewers report that an h-beta filter can make these much easier targets with much smaller, rich-field instruments. Approach this field like you would NGC 1499, the California Nebula, and it's likely you'll have success
