The NGC 281 Nebula in Casseopeia - The Pacman Nebula, is quite hard to get. The field of view in my picture does not quite cover the whole nebula. I will have to come back on the target with larger field of view using my refractor later.
The Nebual is about 10 kLY from us and IC 1590 in the center is an open cluster of stars. It is believed to be a Nebula with star formation.

The M52 in the upper center of the image is an open cluster in Cassiopeia with about 200 stars.
The Bubble Nebula in the middle right of the image has a very distinct 'bubble' emmison nebula.
The image is a crop from in the upper right coner, thus some coma in the picture.
