Cederblad 214 (located on the left of this field) is a large emission nebula in the constellation Cepheus.  It is part of a complex that also includes a fainter, arch-like nebulous expanse known as NGC7822 (located on the right of this field).  There is a small, magnitude 18.3 planetary nebula (PLN 119+6.1) in the upper right hand portion of this field, best seen on the larger views- can you find it?  More information about this interesting region may be found on Rob Gendler's webpage.  Please check out the larger images in the links above.
