capillaries, veins, and arteries

High res version worth a look given the fine detail.

https://astrob.in/2e6801/0/

This area isnt the brighest part of the SN remnant, but looking at the NASA skysurvey images it did look complex and interesting... and I'm pleased how much of that interest comes out here, first thought was like a red silken spider web coming apart, or capilliaries, veins and arteries... maybe I've been watching too much true crime on youtube, but it also looks horrifyingly a bit like the aftermath of a violent crime.

This is 7hours of the better (guiding not great) 300s exposures I gathered over three partially cloudy nights only imaging this in the early evening. Ended up unintentionally with almost twice the Ha as OIII but seems to bring out the fine red filigree detail well.

Stacked, then HOO combined and pre-processed in APP with some selective colour adjustment then into PS for some selective mask work to bring out colour and detail a little more.

A terrific Vela Robert. Great detail and really well processed. The stars look wonderful as well. I imaged this area as well recently with processing yet to be finalised. Its a very detailed part of Vela.

Nice one. You're the bolognaise master. Soon you'll be able to mosaic the whole area.

thanks all for the kind comments

Mike I love your "War of the Worlds human fertilized red weed" analogy

Greg looking forward to how your version turns out - narroband as well? I wonder if there's any SII here to be had as well as the Ha/OIII?

And marc now you've mentioned bolognaise it reminds me of an old carpet cleaning add aroudn that artist "pro hart" (i think?) who paints a picture throwing bolagnase on a carpet, looks a bit like this eh ;-)

I didn't take any S11. Not sure if it the object is high enough in the sky anymore to take some S11.It might be.

Very impressive Rob

As Marc suggested a great area to expand on.

Looking at Mike and Andy's versions, gathering some S2 might be worthwhile.

Well done

thanks Andy, nicely done and can see that tweak of colour from the SII. I've moved over to the whirling dervish so may be some time before i return for SII
