SH2-293 (Sharpless 293 )

Both Sh2-293 and SH2-295 are seen in the image with part of SH2-296 also known as the Seagull nebula. SH2-293 is the larger round nebula that picks up well even with the standard RGB filters. A larger telescope may pick up more structure than seen here but the nebula does quite well with the hydrogen-alpha filter.
