The Tadpole Nebula, Sh2-236, in a bi-color HO narrowband image. You can easily find the two tadpoles that give rise to the name of this nebula. It belongs to one big emission complex together with the Flaming Star Nebula.

Composed from a total of 9 hours exposure time with 10 min subs using the Baader Ha and OIII filters from my backyard in a red zone. Make sure to look at the full-size view and check out the mono version based on the H data only.
