Description

A wide field image of a supernova remnant in Taurus taken with a Canon 135 f/2 lens. This was quite a difficult object for me and I had a lot of bad subs due to the camera not being exactly perpendicular with the image plane and I only ended up with 8 Ha subs thus the image has quite of bit of noise. This object was the reason I purchased a 135mm lens as it's so cool looking! HaRGB, Ha 8x1200s, RGB 5x250s.
