M27 - 24.8.2015 at 02.00 Helsinki Observation number 41466

Visibility IV / V

Tero Hiekkalinna, Ursa (Helsinki)

Early autumn is quite a nice time to observe and shoot, when it's nice and warm even at night. I photographed Weight Lifting for three nights (17th, 21st and 24th August). This is my first picture of the M27.

      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.

M27 on hieno havannoida sekä kuvaamalla, että visuaalisesti . Hyvä kuva Nostopainosumusta!
