Hi! These are two beautiful objects of canis major. SH2-301 is an HII region that is best viewed with UHC filter, and NGC 2362, a nice cluster around Tau Canis Majoris. Hope you like it, there's more info in the link:

Lovely. I especially like SH2-301 -another new one for me - though I  must admit I did have to tilt my screen to see the nebulosity this time!  Your observations are inspiring me to go after these faint nebulae. I bagged the Fox's Head last night, following your description  and sketch the other day. Thanks :waytogo:

Migue,

 

Very fine captures both.

Yes, that faint nebulosity around SH 2-301 looks very fine.

 

Frank :)
