Description

Data collected earlier this season and was not sure I could process it at all, but I tried.

http://galaxymap.org/cat/view/sharpless/268

Quote from above:

This large but faint nebula is prominent in hydrogen-alpha and infrared. According to Avedisova, it is ionised by the B1 III giant HD 42352.

The position of this nebula in the BFS Vizier catalog and in SIMBAD is currently incorrect.

For more information on this region, including detailed references, see the Sh 2-266 to Sh 2-272 section of the description of the Orion (200° - 190°) sector in the Commentary on the Galactic Plane.
