Hen 1-1 (2013)

Hen 1-1 is small, faint, and kind of fuzzy looking. Still, there are some details to discern, such as the two small structures separated and flanking the nebula to the lower left and upper right. I wouldn’t try to read too much into the other patchy bits of dim noise around the nebula. Some of those slightly brighter spots are the result of imperfect cosmic ray removal. Parallel, diagonal linear structures are just readout noise.

Single channel of data subjectively colorized. Data is unavailable for three flat triangular shapes in the corners.

North is up.
