Cham's Sprite Nebulae (old addons recovered)

Cham once made many nebula models with sprites, but most of them were lost (the ones that are still available are the M31 Nebulae ). Now the Celestia Extended Pack v3.0 (a prototype of Celestia Origin) has been recovered, and it has Cham's sprite nebulae! I've uploaded these nebulae as a stand-alon...

Re: Pictures from Celestia

TYC 1733-118-1, a binary K-dwarf + white dwarf system, "discovered" while looking for stars near Alpheratz for a worldbuilding project. SIMBAD only has an entry for the K-dwarf, with no indication that it's a binary.
