Sh2-234 aka IC417

HST-palette, (HST=Hubble Space Telescope) from the emission of ionized elements, R=Sulfur, G=Hydrogen and B=Oxygen.

This is not too commonly imaged target due the lowish surface brightness and the proximity of two eye catchers, IC 405 and IC 410. This image was one of the most difficult one to process due the very weak signal. There was some very dim O-III emission in the target, it can be seen as a Blue.
