More in Cepheus

This session proved a bit challenging as patches of thin cloud made spells of decent transparency a lengthy wait at times. On the look out for something new to image I came across this pair of objects in Cepheus. Back to the Newtonian for this one as both objects are very small. I'm still not certain of an identity for the small nebula at upper left (RA 22.16 Dec 57.28). The attractive cluster lower right is NGC 7235. The glow at bottom is from the 4th magnitude Epsilon Cephei (Phicares). Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 15 x 7 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
update 28/8/12:
I have now managed to identify the nebula as planetary PK 103 +0.1 
It has an apparent magnitude of 13.50.
