AbstractAbout 1300, 60 and 70 Herbig-Haro candidates have been picked up in the Ori A/L1641, Ori B/L1630 and NGC 2264/Mon OBI regions, respectively, on deep Schmidt plates. The contrast enhancement and unsharp masking technique has been applied simultaneously. Unsharp masking applied to an objective-prism Schmidt plate for the Carina Nebula region has yielded the detection of 38 Hαemission stars, of which 13 are new findings.
