Jon Talbot captured this absolutely amazing image of Sh2-155 using the Stellarvue SVS 130. This image won him the astro imaging award for wide field images at the Chiefland Star Party this year. 

Sh2-155, also known as 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. The Cave nebula is the brighter, glowing reddish area near the center of the image with a darker cloud of interstellar dust blocking the light from the center portion of it. This wide field image shows other areas of red emission nebulosity and dark clouds of dust along with several blue reflection nebula. Image data is listed below the image.
