Sh2-177 in H-Alpha

According to "Sharpless and Avedisova both conclude that Sh 2-177 is ionised by the O9 V star BD +61 105. Russeil combines Sh 2-172, Sh 2-173 and Sh 2-177 into one star formation region. All three nebulae lie in the direction of the expanding shell of gas and dust surrounding the Cas OB5 association.
