In the center of the image is the open cluster IC 1848, which is in the constellation Cassiopeia. The open cluster is surrounded by the emission nebula SH2-199, which is a massive star forming region. The small emission nebula IC 1871 is seen partially at the top center. The entire nebulous region is often called the Soul Nebula.
