Description

Sh 2-196 (round, below center) is a rather faint emission nebula in Cassiopea, with no clear structure, surrounded by other subtle nebulae including the also roundish and even smaller Sh 2-192, 193 and 194 (above center, right), and not far from the so callled Heart and Soul Nebulae. But I think it makes a nice composition in a rich star field.
