Vela Supernova Remnant by Tony, on Flickr


Vela Supernova Remnant (over 800 light years away and exploded around 11000 years ago) taken from the driveway at home under Bortle 5 sky; we've been getting an unbelievable run of clear nights here in Brisbane so I've been busy trying to get as much time on the target as I can. Unfortunately the Supernova sets quite early now so even with the clear nights there's not much time to shoot. This is actually a 2 panel stitch with the goal of making a 4 panel mosaic; so far total integration time's about 13 hours all up with roughly 6.5 hours of light on each panel. I actually still want to put more time onto each panel so far but I don't think it'll be possible if I want any chance of finishing the mosaic this season...

Appreciated guys, moon is getting bigger so I might be waiting until close to next new moon to start shooting it again (as I am doing a mosaic I want to keep the subs somewhat consistent and don't want to start introducing too much gradients etc even if I am shooting with a dual narrowband filter). If I am lucky (and if weather allows) I might only get about 2 hours a night the supernova is up in the sky for me at next new moon, makes me wonder if I should just keep adding data to what I have for now and finish the mosaic next season. As it is I was surprised at how much I was able to pull out at just 6-7 hours on each panel considering how faint the signal is with this target (individual 5 min subs at ISO 400 with my Ha modified Canon 77D with the narrowband filter the un-stretched raw files are literally a black frame with speckles of stars).
