Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Celestron C11 Sct, Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount,Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik filters.

Supernova remnant in the constellation Taurus. Gas cloud from a star that exploded in the year 1054.

Kept my telescope at f10 for high resolution imaging of the tendrils and filaments.

Good clear night so I was able to capture over four hours of data. Used luminance layering to help bring out the detail.

LRGB image with 4 hours and 25 minutes of data. 26 x Lum, 9 x Red, 9 x Green, 9 x Blue 5 minute exposures.
