NaSt1 (aka Wolf–Rayet 122) is a peculiar emission-line star embedded in an extended nebula of [N ii] emission with a compact dusty core. The object was previously characterized as a Wolf–Rayet (WR) star cloaked in an opaque nebula of CNO-processed material, perhaps analogous to η Car and its Homunculus nebula, albeit with a hotter central source. To discern the morphology of the [N ii] nebula we performed narrow-band imaging using the Hubble Space Telescope and Wide-field Camera 3. The images… Expand
