While making scale studies from various objects, I did make some new panoramas from archived images.
I will publish some of them as an individual images, comments and suggestions are welcome.
Sharpless panorama, Sh2-216, 217, 219, 221 and BFS44
East of constellation Camelopardalis
Image is in HST-palette from an emission of ionized elements, R=Sulfur, G=Hydrogen and B=Oxygen.
There are two individual images used to make this panoramic view:
- Left side, http://astroanarchy.blogspot.com/2011/01/two-ways-to-end-life-planetary-nebula.html
- Right side, http://astroanarchy.blogspot.com/2011/02/sh2-216-project-finalized.html
This image covers over six degrees of sky horizontally, that's 12 full Moons side by side. Here is a "scale study out of this target, the Moon is marked as a gray circle:
Note. Size of the full Moon is marked as a gray circle, at lower Right corner, for a scale.
An annotated image shows objects in the field
There are very little information out of objects in the image and there is very few images from them generally.
I think, this must be the first three band narrowband image out of this field.
Objects in this image are spread out over wide range of distances. They are not forming a single complex, like the Cassiopeia arc west of Camelopardalis. The largest objects in a field are Sharpless 221 and 216.
First from the Left is a supernova remnant,
