Supernova Remnant Simeis 147 on Auriga/Taurus Border

Imaged in HaRGB and Ha from Nova Scotia in fall, 2012 through a Canon EF135mm f2.0L telephoto lens and a SBIG ST-8300M camera with Astrodon 3nm Ha and RGB Series E filters

The filaments are very faint and tend to be overwhelmed in the thick starfield. The lower image shows the remnant mainly in the light of hydrogen alpha emission which de-empahsizes the foreground field stars.
