Image of the Month - December 2018

Hi NSO users!

As per, post your lovely images below and this time add a brief description about the object and why you chose it! Feel free to add anything you (how you processed it etc.).

Good luck!

Caldwell 7

Caldwell 7 is a spiral galaxy located about 8 million light years away in the constellation Camelopardalis which can be observed using binoculars! I choose this galaxy because there have been two reported supernovae there since 2004, SN 1954J and SN2004dj. SN 1954J is particularly interesting as it may be a "supernova imposter" which is a stellar explosion which appears to be a supernova but does not destroy their origin star.
