I would like to share this rare nebula.

 

It's a not common nebulae and very faint, Sh2 232 is the biggest one at the center top the image.
Also on the picture Sh2-235 (the blue one) and Sh2-231.

 

After to see how it looks like on this orientation, I would like to named this group as Halloween Pumpkin (I hope you could see it!!)

 

In total 16 hours of integration time with very carefully process.

I used a ASI1600 with Astrodon filters on a Teleskop Service TS Photoline 107mm f/6.5 Super-Apo, Riccardi reducer and Astro-Physics Mach1 GTO mount.

 

 

Here you find the links to Astrobin and Flickr where is all the info

WOW bow.gif  The Pumpkin is clear if you squint while using averted vision (just kidding. It is easy to see the pumpkin).

Nice work, Jose.  You did a great job with these faint nebulas.  I have some tricolor data on Sh2-235 in the processing pipeline now.  It's pretty bright and detailed, but it doesn't seem to get much attention.

Just I published a new version with more aggressive SCNR to reduce the green gradient a bit.
