Sh2-140 is an emission nebula in the Cepheus constellation.
The image is my first attempt at mixing Ha and RGB.
The initial idea was in fact to make a bicolor combination HaOIII with frames taken all from the terrace of the house with strong light pollution: unfortunately after obtaining some frames in OIII I realized that there is virtually no OIII signal in this area!
Since the image only in Ha was not very "catchy", I then decided to opt for a Ha-RGB, with the RGB taken from a hill place with dark sky
