M27 - 15.8.2015 at 03.00 Pori Observation number 40960

Visibility II / V

Jarkko Suominen, Porin Karhunvartijat

Of course, the cottage also had to be towed. There were problems right from the start when the boat's engine refused to start ... or it started, but stopped in the middle of the trip (in the middle of the sea). It only had to repair the engine, the spark plug had come to an end.

The amount of stuff came as a surprise when I got to the shore of the cottage and it still went so that I got the equipment unloaded from the boat.

The lights of the city of Pori hampered the shooting a bit, and it was not very clear that the Lifting Fog was separated by a small tube, but in the end it thanks to the stand and the result is this image taken with a slightly longer exposure (compared to my previous images).

      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.
