    Smile Thor's Helmet (NGC 2359)



    Hi all ,

    here is my last processed picture from the 26 november night.

    NGC 2359 (also known as Thor's Helmet) is an emission nebula in the constellation Canis Major. The nebula is approximately 15,000 light-years away and 30 light years in size. Known as a Wolf-Rayet star, the central star is an extremely hot giant thought to be in a brief, pre-supernova stage of evolution. It is similar in nature to the Bubble Nebula, interactions with a nearby large molecular cloud are thought to have contributed to the more complex shape and curved bow-shock structure of Thor's Helmet.
    It is also Sharpless catalog Sh2-298 and Gum catalog 4.

    The setup used was :

    The setup :

    William Optics Megrez 90 + Televue reducer TRF2008 + ATIK314L / Geoptik GK300
    Guiding: VIXEN VMC110 + ATIK314L+

    Luminance: 6 x 5 min
    H-alpha: 5 x 10 min
    R: 6 x 5 min
    G: 5 x 5 min
    B: 5 x 5 min

    is a total time of 2:40 min

    Processing: DeepSkyStacker, PixInsight, MaximDL and Photoshop
