The author describes his astronomical observations of deep sky celestial objects in the Cepheus Flare region from the Chiefland Astronomy Village in Florida. An image shows a blue reflection nebula called Cederblad 201/vdB152 created by the collision of a ninth magnitude blue variable star SAO10287 with a dark nebula Barnard 157. Other observations are a red nebula on the southeast perimeter of B157 facing the expanding supernova remnant (SNR), and a bright SNR filament named HH450X.
