Vela SNR- Gamma Velorum Region

A wave of Ionised Oxygen (O3) streaks across the background clouds of Hydrogen (Ha).
It is believed to result from a powerful explosion of a star some 11,000 -12,000 years ago.
The shock waves shown in the image as blue from oxygen emission and red from hydrogen emission have been expanding ever since.

The huge star at the top left is Gamma Velorum, a quadruple star system in the constellation Vela.
At a combined magnitude +1.7, it is one of the brightest stars in the night sky, and contains by far the closest and brightest Wolf-Rayet star.
It has the traditional Arab name Suhail al Muhlif.
(wiki)

The open cluster at the centre is Collinder 173.

Image & processing inspired by Marco Lorenzi

A very pleasing, dare I say nuanced, capture of this region Andy.

All of the technical stuff is well handled, hence you can focus just on the subject matter...gossamer veils and distant suns.

Nice .

Thanks Peter!
I havn't seen too many other images of this bit of the SNR, and how about that massive 4 star system - what does one even call that, a quadrasystem?

Cheers Mike - The SNR is a fascinating region as you know, with the famous Pencil nebula and your own Moustache nebula image springing to mind as well.

Like it a lot Andy. Another one in the category of "wish I had taken that".

Awesome. One to be proud of.

We didn't realize that the Vela SNR went right past Regor there. Now we know.

Thanks Steve, credit is due to Marco for the original inspiration!
It's getting harder to find completely new stuff to shoot out there now

Cheers M&T, I'm still gobsmakked by the quad star system as well, shows that there's still lots up there for us all to photograph yet.

A beautiful image Andy with your trademark clever framing.

These tendrils are all through Vela. I like the Lorenzi style slightly crimson Ha areas as well.

Greg.
