Last night, I imaged SH2-261  (  Lower’s Nebula ).  This is an Emission Nebula, and has a size larger than a Full Moon.
90 minutes of imaging ( 18 5-min exposures ).  I think it turned out pretty nice.
This is a  “pocket” of Hydrogen Gas, illuminated by a background star, but is NOT thought to be from a SuperNova… according to what I am reading.

Hmmmmm.  Looks like an expanding field of gas from “something”…..

 

Fun to look at.[attachment=1417251

I love your template. I'm going to copy it for my own logbook...
