M57 the Ring Nebula

Recommended Posts

I hope you will enjoy this image of M57 the Ring Nebula which was acquired last June from Korrinthos city in Greece. 
It blends L and R-G-B data. I have paid special attention to reveal the star colors and nebula color as well.
There's a pretty spiral galaxy ΙC 1296 close to the Ring Nebula of magnitude 14.30.

You can access the image with technical details under this link

Enjoy and clear skies!

Got the link to work now .Amazing image well done.

There is also a faint galaxy close to M13 Globular Cluster which I've seen a few times with a 200mm refl and also a unconnected planetary nebula in front of the M46 open cluster,which would also make good candidates for fainter objects photo-bombing brighter ones!

Looks good.  IMO the background could stand a little darkening, and the center of the ring as well--well, I suppose not really darkening in the center--a reduction in histogram perhaps.  Something to bring down the centers value so teh central star is more visible.  To me the center looks more opaque than gassy.  (sorry, I am always looking for ways to tweak my images toward perfection and like to hear such suggestions--not being critical, just fine tuning a precision sports car!)

Yes, maybe just a bit over stretched for me, too, but what a great Ring Nebula! I really like it.

Hi

Thank you all for the comments, I am glad you liked my photo. I have played a little bit with the Ring Nebula in Pixinsight in order to reduce its lightness and allow the inner stars to be more visible.
