Sh2-224 supernova remnant in Auriga, HaRGB

Recommended Posts

SH2-224 is a supernova remnant in the constellation Auriga, a remnant of an exploded star about 15,000 light years away. The nebula does not appear to have a proper name. Flying Bat nebula could be a good one, or Flying Cat nebula, or something more ghostly.

This is data from Saturday night with the double Esprit rig. Esprit 150 with 0,79 x reducer and ASI071 for RGB (34 x 10 min) and Esprit 100 with ASI1600MM for Ha (48 x 10 min).  Sitting on my Mesu 200. Processed in in PI and PS.

In the RGB data there is not even a hint of the nebula, so this one is very very faint. I also post the RGB image. Would be cool do an image where you can flip between the two, but have no idea how to do it.

Last image from Sweden for a while since I am off to Australia for a month. Will bring a travel scope.

Comments & suggestions most welcome!

Nice one Gorann.  I was wondering if this was worth imaging, it's definitely on my list now.

Very nice Göran,

Love those stars and the star colours.

Just did a quick animation of the two images, if you are not happy with it, let me know and I will remove it.

Two votes now! I have to admit that I had to google Star Destroyer - always been more of a fan of 2001 than Star Wars (after all there is no sound in space), but I can see the resemblance.

One vote for a snail then, I can see that too but maybe not a very selling name....
