Cederblad 201 (VDB-152) in Cepheus, finally got more data this year, last was 2016 and not enough to make a good image. This time, I captured many features that I missed before. The bow wave at left and below the raging star with the bubble around it appears to be dust, but above and left are 2 bow waves of compressed hydrogen, that I picked up with the new data. Plus, there are a couple of galaxies, one in the upper head of the nebula.
Pretty pleased that I managed to get something to finish, it has been a terrible 9 months here.

Hi Floyd,
That's a superb image. I looked at a large number of images on the web of this object and your image was right up there with the best. That's a great effort on your part.
Here's one that has some of the regions labeled if you mouse over the image:
