The Elephant’s Trunk nebula is a concentration of interstellar gas and dust within the much larger ionized gas region IC 1396 located in the constellation Cepheus about 2,400 light years away from Earth.

I took this photo during Sep, Oct and Nov of 2015 with over 14 Hours of exposure.
This is the longer exposure I ever made on one object.
Enjoy!
