Description

New apporach to this popular object after five years from my first image.

IC 443 (also known as the Jellyfish Nebula and Sharpless 248 (Sh2-248)) is a galactic supernova remnant (SNR) in the constellation Gemini.
ts distance is roughly 5,000 light years from Earth.

IC 443 may be the remains of a supernova that occurred 3,000 - 30,000 years ago. 
C 443 is one of the best-studied cases of supernova remnants interacting with surrounding molecular clouds.

This images is a result of a 65 hours of integration time using rgb and narrow band filters.

One learning on that image is that I am really happy with this new tube used, a Takahashi Epsilon 160-ED did all the captures and this is the second published result.
