Sh2-185 Gamma Cassiopeia, IC59, IC 63

Thanks Floyd... Here is a color version processed to accentuate the hydrogen emission nebula...Oh, the image is intentionally decentered to demonstrate that there are two rings around Gamma Cassiopeia and overlaying nebula that are not image artifacts. Compare this image to the attached wider field image
