This nebula was a challenge for my setup. That's faint! Even if I had a lot of noise, anyway I'm presenting here the result.
All the field is full of red background, and the main red nebula in the
center is Sh2-150, while the blue one on the left is VdB154. A little
above the two lies GN 22.27.6, a small and yellowish nebula. I'm unaware
of the name of the red arched nebula on the right (maybe not named),
but the associated dark nebula is LDN1205. The brighter star near the
center is 26 Cep, and a faint and blue nebula seems to encircle it.

limited to less than 4 hours; a little more would have helped in
reducing the background noise.
