IC 3568/C-14/Art 285


Recommended Posts

Here is an unusual little object: the 18" diameter mag. 12 planetary IC 3568. Conveniently located in the circumpolar constellation of Camelopardalis, only 8 degrees from the pole, it nevertheless seems to be rarely imaged; in fact I could find no images of it on the net apart from the Hubble one:

In my LRGB image it is looking exactly like a tiny replica of Comet Holmes at its peak. It was easy to see visually in the C14 in light-polluted sky (mag. 4) and almost starlike.

The image was secured through 50 minutes of 1 minute unguided exposures.
