NGC 7293 - 13.8.2021 at 01.10 - 13.8.2021 at 02.28 Mänttä-Vilppula Observation number 100637

Visibility IV / V

Helix fog, that eye that looks frustratingly low at these latitudes, stays below 7 degrees even at its highest. Yet it has been tried over the years with varying results. As a rule, there was something fussy in front or the view was limited. Now, for more than an hour, it hit a cloudless weather. To do this, however, had to land in an accessible place.

      Planetary nebula is the remnant of a death star. It could be ring-shaped, disc-like or spread out rather irregularly.

      With the exception of some nearest objects planetary nebulae have a small apparent diameter and they need a rather big instrument to be visible.
