  • A deep image of the Kepler SNR has been obtained in the light of H-alpha + N II forbidden-line with the faint object spectrograph and camera (EFOSC) and a CCD detector at the ESO 3.6 m telescope. The visibility of the optically emitting knots of ionized gas has been greatly enhanced by subtraction of the continuum radiation. Features as faint as 2 percent of the night-sky brightness have been identified and a half-shell of emission is clearly revealed. The total H-alpha luminosity of the… CONTINUE READING
