, on Flickr
The red star just right of dead-centre is Carbon star SAO 21002, it is right next to a blue star of roughly the same brightness. Over to the right is emission nebulosity SH2 - 168. Both lie close to Caph in Cassiopeia which is just off the bottom-left of the frame. Typical of the Caph region you can see plenty of starlight absorbing dust in this frame.
