NGC 6992, NGC 6995, IC 1340 - 29.8.2021 at 22.35 - 30.8.2021 at 01.17 Turku Observation number 100803

Visibility IV / V

Last night I was able to take the next exposures of the gauze mist with the new Sharpstar 94 tube, the weather was good even though a little mist seemed to accumulate so I finally got 2 hours of data collected. The upcoming nights look clear, at least according to the forecast, so the lighting of the subject should be successful in the coming nights as well.

      Supernova remnant is the remnant of the big star died in supernova explosion. The supernova remnants are quite irregularly shaped. Rather many of them ring-like strusture.

      The moderate big instruments and possibly special filters are needed to see supernova remnants.


      The Crab Nebula was born in a star explosion in  1054. This is the easiest supernova remnant in the sky to observe. Image Tero Hirvikoski.


      The supernova remnant Simesis 147 is in Taurs and Auriga. Image J-P Metsävainio.


      The Veil Nebula in Cygnus is wide-area supernova remnant in the sky. There is a detailed image of the boxed area. Image J-P Metsävainio.


      This detail of Veil Nebula is known as Pickering's Triangle. Image J-P metsävainio.

Hyvä kuva muuten, mutta liekö ollut fokus aavistuksen verran sivussa? Tilasin samanlaisen putken. Saa nähdä, pääseekö samaan terävyyteen kuin esim. Esprit 100- putkella.
