The sparse open cluster NGC 2659 can be seen just above centre in the photo. Above that again is the north–south running section of the Highway we call the Bypass. The Bypass connects the southern section to the Crest and e Velorum. In large amateur telescopes with a narrowband filter, the south-eastern crescent stands out the most.

It is particularly suited to narrowband imaging due to the high level of OIII present. The object is not, however, really suited to an HaRGB hybrid because the H-alpha will overpower the strength of the OIII in the blue/green channels. 22 Fig. 8 Thor’s Helmet (north is left). 1 The Hunter and His Dog Thor’s Helmet — NGC 2359 (Gum 4) 23 Technical Information – Fig. 7 QSI 583wsg Mono 7 × 20 min H-alpha 7 × 20 min OIII 4 × 20 min H-beta (All unbinned) 40¢ × 27¢ Chapter Two Vast Explosive Remnants Puppis Vela S.
