A Faint Planetary Nebula

A Faint Planetary Nebula
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Something different last night… Instead of going for the brightest non-stellar object in Hercules, I tried one of the faintest, inspired by the picture of it in this month’s Astronomy Now. This is planetary nebula Abell 39 – 25 x 10min frames with the Atik 460ex OSC. The small edge-on spiral galaxy visible at about 10 o’clock relative to the nebula is mag 16.6 PGC58246.
