The Cave Nebula

The Cave Nebula

The Cave Nebula, Sh2-155 or Caldwell 9, is a dim and very diffuse bright nebula within a larger nebula complex containing emission, reflection, and dark nebulosity.
It is located in the constellation Cepheus.
Visually it is a difficult object, but with adequate exposure, makes a striking image.
The nebula gets its name from the dark lane abutting the brightest curve of emission nebulosity which gives the appearance of a deep cave when seen through a telescope visually.(WIKI)
