I used Registar with your image to show its position and extent. Right under our collective noses on the tail of Scorpio!
Thank you Bert,
There has been research on faint SNR's in the southern milky way from the UK Schmidt Telescope. In 1999, I met one of the principal investigators at the UK Schmidt, working on the ancient SNR survey. Waht a fun project. I think I was more impressed with the gigantic Ha filter they had for the Schmidt camera to do the survey.
Scanning my recent Scorpius mosaic, I have found several faint SNR candiates that were catalogued from the Ha survey.
