The "Baby" nebula

IC1848 in Cassiopeia - The "Baby" Nebula ,or the Soul Nebula (Sharpless 2-199, LBN 667), is an emission nebula in Cassiopeia.
Several small open clusters are embedded in the nebula: CR 34, 632, and 634 (in the "head") and IC 1848 itself in the "body".
The object is more commonly called by the cluster designation IC 1848.
Small emission nebula IC 1871 is present just left of the top of the head, and small emission nebulae 670 and 669 are just below the lower back area.
This complex is the eastern neighbor of IC 1805 (the Heart Nebula) and the two are often mentioned together as the "Heart and Soul".
