Witches' Broom & Pickering's Triangle


Recommended Posts

Delighted to unveil my image of the of Veil Nebula in the constellation Cygnus. I've finally finished processing it after photographing this on Holiday in Norfolk last month. The total exposure time is 3 hours and 20 minutes. This is one of my favourite objects in Deep Space, it's a supernova remnant from a Star which was 20 times more massive than our Sun, and exploded between 10,000 and 20,000 years ago. This part of the remnant is called the Witches' Broom, and below it, Pickering's Triangle. The emissions are made up of Hydrogen, Sulfur and Oxygen and it's 2,400 Light Years from Earth.
