Nice Gregg. Its shape reminded me a little of the Crescent Nebula.

Subject: [DarkSkyNewMexico] Sh2-223 and visitor

Hi all

Sh2-223 is a large but faint emission nebula in Auriga; when I started imaging it I noticed that comet c2017 T2 PanSTARRS was going to pass in front of it on November 18 and 19.
