Description

SHO-image of Sharpless 223, 224, 225 and 227 in the constellation Auriga.

Sh2-224 is a very faint supernova remnant at distance of about 14700 light years (in the Perseus arm of the Milky Way).
Sh2-223, Sh2-225 and Sh2-227 are faint emission nebulae, H II regions.

This SHO-image is acquired with the Takahashi FSQ-106ED refractor and FLI PL16803 camera from Telescope Live in IC Astronomy Observatory, Oria, Spain.

Total integration time 360 minutes
SHO: 12 sub-frames of 600s with each narrowband filter.
Dataset Telescope Live.
