SH2-217 and SH2-219

These two Sharpless objects may not look very interesting but to me they are a big milestone. They are the 100th and 101st images I have taken from the Sharpless catalogue. Again this may not seem so great as the catalogue has some 314 objects in it, however, nearly 100 of the objects are too low from my position, so I’m just about half way there( the remaining ones are pretty small or are in fact dark nebula…..difficult to find and image)

Sh2-217 is near the center and the larger of the 2 nebulae,  sh2-219 is in the 2.30 position from 217 near the edge. 217 is listed as 9′ and medium brightness (2). 219 is only 3′ and bright (3).
