Sharpless 2-1 is a very faint reflection nebula in Scorpio.
This image is framed such that you have an emission nebula lit up by the star PI-Sco to the right, then a reflection nebula that looks like a mirrored lower case h in the middle and a dusty star region over to the left.
Dark skies needed for this. Imaged with an F5 scope at 10 minute subs so very faint indeed.
