Using the O-III at 49X, this section of the supernova remnant forms an arc of about 90 degrees. The brightest parts of the nebulosity are at either end of the arc. One end of the nebula is rather smooth, while the other is a mottled mess. By taking away the filter, the nebula disappears completely.
