Results of a search for new Hα objects in the Cepheus region are presented. The observations on which the search was based were made in 1979 and 1985 at the 40″ Schmidt telescope of the Byurakan Astrophysical Observatory with a 4° objective prism. Of the 80 emission stars detected, 68 are new. Most of them are fainter than the sun in absolute magnitude. A large fraction of the emission stars discovered may be flare stars as well as T Tau and Herbig Ae/Be stars.
