Lots of stars in this one.. I like the dark nebula at the top right as well as a few small SH nebula around the field. Not sure what the dark nebula is at the left but I stretched this image a bit more.

Some of the other SH objects here are SH2-153/152 (The large one on the left)
SH2-149/148 (mid left)

Could not find out what the other Dark stuff was, but it was nice to see appear in the image.

Clear skies!
