Show astrometry data

 IC 443, also known as the Jellyfish Nebula, is a supernova remnant in the constellation Gemini approximately 5,000 light years from Earth. IC 444 to the upper left is a reflection nebula.

This image was shot in Samphran, Thailand with an Officina Stellare RH 300 f/3.0 telescope and an FLI PL29050 CCD camera. More than 27 hours of data was collected through narrowband filters, with Sulfur 2, Hydrogen Alpha and Oxygen 3 mapped to Red, Green and Blue channels resulting in this Hubble palette image.
