NGC 6992 - 13.11.2022 at 18.23 - 13.11.2022 at 21.30 Janakkala, Tervakoski Observation number 110798

Visibility III / V

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

I didn't really intend to describe the eastern gauze fog here, it just happened to come along.

The purpose was to test Vespera to see how many stars I can see with an exposure of about three hours from the Swan constellation, as well as how the tracking keeps up. I offer donut coffees to whoever counts the stars from the picture heh...

      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.

Sain laskennan loppuun - 12551 tähteä.
Missäs tarjoat ne munkkikahvit ? ;)
No myönnän että huijasin käyttämällä AstroArtia laskentaan.
