Little Veil Neb­ula (SNR G065.2+05.7) in Cygnus

G65.2+5.7 is a SNR in the con­stel­la­tion of Cygnus, sim­il­ar to the well known Cygnus Loop. It was dis­covered 1977 by T.R. Gull and cov­ers an area of about 3.5° x 4.0°. Because of G65.2+5.7 large dis­tance (about 2500 lightyears) and high­er age (about 30’000 years), the fil­a­ments are very faint. Parts of the fil­amet­ary struc­tures have been cata­logued as Sh2-91, Sh2-94 and Sh2-96.

To bring out the struc­ture of the loops, very long nar­row­band images have been used and com­bined with RGB data. North is up in this image.

Lot of very detailed inform­a­tion about this object can be found on Stephane Zolls web­site.
