Kes 78 in Aquila
The starfields of constellation Aquila are very often overseen, but many regions are full of galactic treasures. This image shows three Sharpless objects (Sh2-66, Sh2-67, Sh2-69), two supernova remnants (SNR G032.8–00.1 aka Kes 78, SNR G031.5–00.6) and several planetary nebulae. Furthermore, dark nebula LDN 604 and star cluster Berkeley 79 and 80 are actors in this scenery. Last but not least, an unknown emission nebula can be found in the image.
The main object of this 3.5x3.5 degree field is Kes 78, a supernova remnant discovered in a radio contiuum survey by Kesteven in 1968, visable above the center of the image. The first optical detection of SNR G032.8–001 was reported in 2009 by P. Boumis et al. (here).

This images was suggested by Sakib Rasool, who helped me identifing the various objects in this stellar field.
