Beautiful clear skies last night gave me another chance to go for some deep sky targets.
IC1396 is a large relatively bright nebula in Cepheus, a bright smudge in the Milky Way with inky dark clouds running through it. One of the main structures within the nebula is called the Elephant's Trunk Nebula.
