NGC 6992 - 27.9.2021 at 00.30 - 27.9.2021 at 03.00 Kokemäki Observation number 101540

Visibility III / V

Eemil Pietilä, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

At the cottage away from light pollution, it is good to try the new modified EOS 1200D. Only the light of the moon disturbed me a little, but yes there was still something in the pictures.

Here is the Eastern Gauze Fog with a total exposure of 2h30min. I took 30 second exposures that I stacked with a Sequator. I also tried the new Photoshop action Pack, which dims and reduces the stars. I made the finishes in Lightroom.

      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.
