Description

A lesser imaged fragment of the Vela SN remnant towards the northern edge I believe.

I like the juxtoposition and contrast between the fire of the emission nebula here and the blue ice of the SN remnant itself. I played around with different orientation here... landed on this one...a bit like a blobby red creature riding on the blue waves of space.

A total of 10hours from a mixed bag over four nights...starting to set early and imaging another target Cat's Paw nebula for the later evening.

This is stacked and processed in APP combined as HOO. Then imported into Photoshop with some adjustment using the astronomy tools plug in.
