Hi there

On a lovely crisp and clear night I got a galaxy and two planetaries.

I hope you like them.



The Cetus galaxy had a very well defined core with the surrounding nebulous material being uniform in appearance.

M76 The Little Dumbbell


The double lobes were clearly visible, the gap between them prominent.

NGC 7662 The Blue Snowball


The colour was there, but it was very subtle, looking ciy blue in appearence, much like Sirius.

Thanks for taking the time.

Great nights trawl, best is M76 which is very difficult but you managed to get both components.

M77 is always pleasing in any sized scope although it is small.

7662 is tiny but you got the annulus shape well.
