The Cat's Eye again

Tremendous image, you have really pulled out the strange shape of this great Planetary. Was this last night? I was blighted by thin high cloud, stuck at my visual target list, but was defeated by the cloud in the end! Thanks for sharing

Great result Dennis. I tried this for 6 hours last night, using subs lengths from 120 down to 10 secs, I took over 600 subs in the end! Which only served to prove one thing to me, how difficult this thing is to get any detail on at all! I was amazed to see the neb showing up brighter than the nearby stars.

Again, great result, you must be pleased with that.

Very nice! I am always really impressed when someone catches such a small planetary nebula such as this - I find them incredibly difficult myself, and so have given up for the time being until i get more experience under my belt.

Great capture - well done :)
