There is, remarkably, essentially nothing in the scientific literature about this nebula even though it is prominent in hydrogen-alpha and visible at radio and infrared frequencies as well. Avedisova places Sh 2-210 in star formation region 152.81+2.90 with four infrared sources and the radio source RRF 1605. None of these objects have any scientific references either. Sh 2-210 lies in the direction of a larger diffuse nebulosity containing several B-class stars.
