Abstract: OH26.5+0.6 is an extreme OH/IR star with a mass-loss rate of the order of 5 10−4 Myr−1. It is one of the brightest OH maser emitters in our Galaxy and is suspected of experiencing a superwind which emerged less than 150 years ago. MERLIN observations made in full polarimetric mode in the 1667, 1665 and 1612 MHz maser lines of OH allowed the first combined insight into the geometric and polarimetric structure of this object.
