NGC-7293 - 4.9.2021 at 23.10 - 5.9.2021 at 00.00 Uurainen Observation number 100998

Visibility II / V

Helix mist should be tried when conditions are right. Last week I filmed it several nights. Admittedly, the number of images per night remains quite small, as the fog wandering in the low southern sky is sometimes hidden behind the trees. The imaging tube is almost horizontal.

      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.
