IC 443 (North Up, East Left)
IC 443, also known as the Jellyfish Nebula and Sharpless 248, is a supernova remnant in the constellation of Gemini. It lies at a distance of ~5,000 light-years and is thought to be the remains of a supernova that occurred 3,000 - 30,000 years ago, possibly creating the neutron star CXOU J061705.3+222127, the collapsed remnant of the stellar core. This image comprises 5 x Ha, OIII and SII (300 seconds each), 0.5m f/2.9 ASA Astrograph with FLI ML3200 camera at an altitude of 80 degrees on 4 December 2018. The Canada France Hawaii Telescope colour scheme is adopted, Ha mapped to R, OIII mapped to G and SII to B. The field of view is 34’ x 23’.
