Results.The Hα and [SII] images reveal the detailed morphology of HH 223, unresolved in previous optical images. Both images show a quite complex knotty, wiggling structure embedded in a low-emission nebula. Comparison between the [SII] and Hα fluxes of the knots are indicative of variations in the excitation conditions through HH 223. In addition, several other faint nebula are detected in Hα a few arcmin to the SE and to the NW of HH 223, all of them lying projected onto the east-west pair of lobes of the quadrupolar CO outflow. Comparison between the Hα and the continuum images confirms the HH-like nature of the Vrba object V83, while the Vrba objects V84 and V85 are identified as faint field stars.
