NGC 281, often called the PacMan nebula, is a H II region located in the constellation of Cassiopeia. Approximately 9500 light years away, the high mass stars located in the cluster power the nebula.

The image was taken with the 80 mm refractor, using R/G/B filters in addition to a Hydrogen Alpha filter to highlight the nebula.
