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.
