From the Pelican to Westerhout 63 in Cygnus

Recommended Posts

Westerhout 63, aka SNR G 082.2+0.53, is a very large (1.3°) and very faint supernova remnant that I stumbled on with my RASA 8 back in November 2020. At that time there were no other images of it on Astrobin, but a few has appeared since then.

This is a Samyang 135 image to which I have added RASA8 data, so a sort of composite-mosaic. I like the way it puts the SNR in a bigger perspective among some better known objects in a very busy part of the sky.

The Samyang is piggybacking on my dual-RASA8 rig. It has an Omegon veTEC571C while the RASAs have ASI2600MC cameras. All with IDAS NBZ filters (Ha+Oiii). Totally about 21 hours of data collected during four nights from 2020 until now. Processed in PI and PS including all the XTerminator procedures.

Cheers & CS, Göran
