Dumbbell Nebula


Recommended Posts

The Dumbbell Nebula (M27) is a planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula. This lies about 1200 light years away and is the second brightest planetary nebula (after Helix nebula) in our night sky. It has formed from the ejection of the outer shell gases of the central star in the image.

Taken last night in my Bortle class 5/6 back garden.

64 Lights at 60 secs ISO800. Optolong L-Pro filter. Canon 650D on a SW200P reflector mounted on HEQ5 Pro. 

CC's welcome.
