NGC 1514 - Planetary Nebula in Taurus


Recommended Posts

Sketch from 16" x228

OIII filter

TFOV 0.30 degrees

L.M 5.3

22.45UT to 23.30UT on 8 December, 2010

-3c air temp (brrrr!!)


This one jumped out at me with the OIII filter in place. Without it the Pl was almost invisible. It surrounds a 9th mag star, and is really quite large in the EP once its full extent becomes known.

Averted vision revealed a brighter southern side (right of sketch)that curved around the central star. A brighter area of less intensity was seen curving around to the north. Definite structure seen with darker patches embedded within the nebula. A narrow dark halo was clearly seen around the central star.
