Supernova remnant within Vela, I had quite a time trying to pick a name for this target, but there really doesn't seem to be any targets within well known catalogs within the frame. The Vela Pulsar and NGC 2645 both seem to be just out of frame. Either way, while it may look quite similar to the Veil Complex, this guy is a whole new level of dim by comparison. At first I envied many southern hemisphere imagers for all their amazing targets they have at their disposal. The more images I make however, the more I realize just how difficult it must be for them with all these very faint targets.
