Speed and aperture  C8 HyperStar? for Sh2-224.  It's on my list when I next have that configuration.

This month I had only one night without clouds so I also had to dug into earlier observing sessions for some objects.

a couple additional captures over the last week to close out the month

 

these are with the Askar FMA135, PlayerOne Saturn-c IMX533, Filter are as indicated, Darks, no flats. 

 

the FOV with this little scope on this camera is 4.7x4.7 degrees square. Wide Field fun.

 
Auriga from M36 at the bottom to IC405 at the top. NBZ 
auriga NBZ 30fx 60s 250g 1800s
 
 
M45, clear filter, 
M45 Clear 240fx 7.5s 250g 1800s
 
 
Orion's Belt, NBZ (pardon the plane and intruding tree...)
Orion Belt NBZ 12fx 60s 400g 720s
 
 
and finally
 
Sh2-240, NBZ. it took an hour to get this much. It was 10 minutes before I could reliably trace the brightest outline on the left
SH2 240 NBZ 120fx 30s 400g 3600s

and the last two for this month using the AT60ED 0.8x, Saturn-C and filter as indicated. these two are guided images using the FMA135 as a guide scope with the Mars-C camera. 

 

both 30 min with 60s exposures

 

IC443 NBZ, gain 350

ic443 NBZ 30fx 60s 350g 1800s
 
 
IC405 with UV/IR, gain 150
ic405 UV IR 30fx 60s 150g 1800s

 

 

Thanks for the fun and challenging list.

The weather was (and still is) terrible this month, so I just wanted to add this capture from a month ago - since it was impossible this month.
 
M45 60 frames 1800s (H alpha) WithDisplayStretch

 

M45 with the AT72EDII w/0.7 reducer and UV/IR filter.
ASI294MM-Pro using ROI and full bin 1 mode (46 megapixel).
30 second subs for 30 minutes at gain 300.  Hot pixel removal and no flats.

Excellent! It is one of the best M45 captures I have seen...

I hoped to get more EAA sessions in this month, but RSV pretty much wrecked the last couple weeks.  Here are my remaining views from earlier this month. 
 

IC 443.  C6 at 307mm; Hyperstar v. 4; IDAS NBZ filter; ASI533MC uncooled, 300 gain; ASIAir Pro; AZ Mount Pro.

20 sec x 40

IC 443
 
Edit: forgot this one. NGC 2044 and B33.  Same setup. 20 sec x 40. 
Flame and Horsehead
 
IC 410.  HOS view.  This setup can’t capture the entire nebula, but it shows the “Tadpoles” pretty well.  C8 at 1450 mm; Starizona SCT IV Corrector; ZWO LRGBSHO filters in ZWO EFW; ASI533MM at 5 C; iOptron CEM40; ZWO EAF; Beelink U-59; NINA, PhD2, ASTAP; Jocular.
IC 410 15Nov22 23 48 45 - HOS view
 
NGC 1931.  The Ha view was best.  Same setup. 
NGC 1931 15Nov22 22 57 15 - Ha view
 
M1.  HOS view.  Same setup. 
Messier 1 16Nov22 00 25 53 - HOS view
