These objects were more difficult to obtain compared to others due to the bright star gamma-cas in its vicinity which caused a lot of visible multi-reflections in the narrowband frames. So I tried my best with RGB and Ha frames, but it needed some tricks to clean the Ha-frames. And I was not 100% successful.
