Comments: This is a hybrid-composite mosiac image using data from two different telescopes and cameras. This is a difficult nebulosity to image due to the brightness and proximity of Gamma Cassiopeia. The hydrogen-alpha layer is a 6 panel mosaic. Each panel was 60 minutes -- it really needs more! TGU H818 P9 and [YDM97] CO 142 are the dark nebulae and molecular clouds in the lower right corner. GN 01.03.6 is the small blue reflection nebula in the upper mid portion of the image. LDN1310 is the dark nebula along the upper margin of the image.
