A group created on 09/24/2019, owned by jerryyyyy, categorized as Specific to an astrophotography target.

Since these objects have been my target of choice in the light polluted San Francisco Bay Area I thought I would make a grouping. Often I want to search Astrobin for prior efforts to see if the image is feasible. Here I can put together a series of mine and others attempts and failures.... Hey avoid Sh2 85)....

I chose these because they are visible in light polluted areas. These objects generally represent left over Hydrogen along the edge of the Milky Way that has gotten molded into interesting shapes.

Salvador has now enabled ordering of "Collections" by tags. I have created a collection of all my Sharpless2 Objects order by tag. I hope we will be able to get this collection also order, but each object will have to have a tag entered like "sh=298"

This is my collection:


Wide-Angle Hydrogen Alpha Nikon Image Sh2 79-171

Hope you enjoy these obscure but interesting objects...
