NGC 6960 - 30.10.2022 at 20.40 - 30.10.2022 at 21.57 Kangasala Observation number 110541

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I packed my travel equipment into the car and headed for Kangasa to the landscapes of Lapinsaari.
Originally, the idea was to photograph Seulas, but the arborist changed the plans to Joutsen's gauze fog.
This was the first experiment with this equipment and software (Az Gti stand and NINA), so compared to that, the experiment was moderately successful.
The exposure could be longer.

      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.

Ihan kohtuullista jälkeä. Esiintyykö a.o. kamerassa ampl clow' ta noilla valotusajoilla vai onko rajattu reunoja pois? Millä softalla poistit tähdet?

Tällä kameralla ei oikeastaan esiinny amp glowta.
Tähdet poistin StarXTerminaattorilla.
