Gathered a few frames of this nebula a couple of years ago. Not enough to really get to grips with, they have just sat there. Having a clear out, so here is the best I could make of what little there was. I don't recall the exact scope or camera, but suspect it was a C11 edge at f10 with Atik 428, using Ha and Oiii filters. I think there was about 5 subs for each filter. Nice object visually, (if you can find it!), the Crystal Ball nebula is scientifically fascinating. Tightly bound double star at the centre with a 10 day period, NASA's WISE infra red telescope imaged a remarkable feature around the nebula unseen in any other wavelength. Having read this article since, I think I will be going back to this one at f7, binned 4x4, and one or two hour exposures, just to see if any of that extraordinary outer ring can be picked up. Based on previous results with M57, I wold hope to get at least something. Thanks for looking. Article from NASA here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/WISE/news/wise20101117.html Tim
