NGC 2359 (Thor's Helmet
Thor’s Helmet (NGC 2359) located 15,000 light years away in the constellation of Canis Major is an emission nebula. The helmet is like an interstellar bubble, blown as a fast wind from the star near the bubble's center sweeps through a surrounding molecular cloud. The photo consist of 3.5 hours of exposure using a Canon 60Da camera at ISO3200 connected to a TPO 8” astrograph (at f/6) mounted on a Celestron CGEM mount. It needs more data, but this was a test run for the TPO astrograph.
