Object name: SH2-223 Sh2-223 and Sh2-224
Apparent RA:  Apparent Dec:
Constellation: Auriga

An extremely difficult region in Auriga with two very faint supernova remnants Sh-2-223 (sh-223) and Sh2-224 (sh-224) with open cluster Berk 70 in a supporting role. These two objects are really wonderful targets if you have a dark sky, but alas they are right on the edge of my setup.
